About the Lantern Hill Farm Series

Holidays are an opportunity for celebration and a time to create family traditions and memories. Yet often the emphasis shifts from the reason for the holiday to making the children the center of the celebration. The Lantern Hill Farm series of picture books and board books is designed to provide parents and grandparents with entertaining stories and easy-to-recreate family activities that allow children to be part of the holiday but not the center of it.
