5 Christmas Books Leaders Should Read In December 2022

With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be great to change up the book recommendations for the month of December. Instead of being specifically leadership-focused, these books will inspire and encourage leaders through the season of Advent and Christmas.

Jaeger was lost when he wanted to continue to search for a way to get past the mountains surrounding the town he lived in. He brought his son, Searcher, along. When Searcher discovered a plant that gave off electrical energy, Jaeger wanted to continue the search for the other side of the mountains. Searcher refused, wanting to bring the plant back to their people.
