Stick Man by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler

This has become a new holiday favorite that's not overly Christmas-y. "Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three." When Stick Man heads out on a jog one morning, he gets into all kinds of unintended trouble. The story follows him on the journey, with Santa appearing toward the end, and (spoiler alert) getting him safely back home. Our kids love the rhyme and repetition. Like The Gruffalo, by the same authors, it's fun to read aloud. (Extra points for inventing a distinctive Stick Man voice.)
