November is known to many as no-shave November, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and the beginning of the American holiday season. Halloween is over. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Christmas decorations are readily available at the nearest retailer before the turkey has even begun to thaw in your refrigerator. This is also a time of reflection on all the wonderful books we have read throughout the year and all the wonderful books we have read with our children.
