Books Still Make Great Gifts

It is getting down to the wire for Christmas gifts and one of the toughest gifts to get young children are books. Luckily Amazon has not put all the local and national book stores out of business. I say this because going to the store is a great way to look for book options and to discuss them with individuals who generally love books. It makes a difference when you can touch the book rather then just look at something on your screen.

Some of my favorite books this year are:

Julie Andrews, Emma Walton Hamilton, Marjorie Priceman (Illustrator) – Treasury for all Seasons: Poems and Songs to Celebrate the Year

Jamie Lee Curtis & Laura Cornell – My Brave Year of Firsts: Tries, Sighs, and High Fives

Sally Lloyd-Jones & Jago – Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing

Chris Alexander – Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away….

Deborah Underwood, Renata Liwska – The Christmas Quiet Book

Jane Yolen, Heidi E. Y. Stemple, Rebecca Guay – The Barefoot Book of Ballet Stories

Another great source of suggestions is your local library and you can also check the NY Times best-seller list.
