The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen (illustrated by Sanna Annukka)

This was such a lovely holiday fairytale I cannot believe I’ve never read it before! It does, obviously, have Christian overtones to it, and I’m guessing Nordic cultural undertones but it’s still so wonderful and relateable. I definitely would love to share this with children. Plus, the illustrations are absolutely GORGEOUS in this edition. An absolute gem to add to your holiday collection of reads.
