I am so pleased at the holiday coloring page kid lit author/illustrator Melanie Hope Greenberg has shared with us today! It's an interfaith ornament with symbols from Christmas and Hanukkah, plus a peace dove for good measure.
Even if you only celebrate one holiday this season, no one can argue with peace, right? So download, print it out and get coloring. After you've finished be sure to read a few picture books for interfaith families that celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas.

New Kid and I had a good time making these ornaments and Melanie has conveniently included instructions right on the coloring page.
