Do you celebrate Three Kings Day? In my house, we do! My husband is from Puerto Rico so he makes sure los Reyes Magos visit our kids every January 6. I used to celebrate it as a child back in Peru, but once we moved to the United States, we kind of lost the tradition. Ever since I became a mom, though, I've been happy to embrace it again and my kids love it. 

Whether you celebrate it or not, here are some book suggestions to either teach your kids about this great tradition or to just read to them as the day gets closer.
