Books as Gifts

Lots of things go away quickly. But stories and books have sticking power and can be shared time and time again. Try a new story, revisit an old favorite. How about a story of fact or perhaps a fantasy? Stories can be read alone, together, aloud or quietly. Pick up one of these book for your favorite child this season:

  • Bats in the Band

  • I'm Brave

  • Ivan: The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla

  • Mix it Up!

  • The Book with No Pictures

  • Stink and the Shark Sleepover

  • Magic Tree House Survival Guide

  • Brown Girl Dreaming

  • The Fourteenth Goldfish

  • How They Choked: Failures, Flops, and Flaws of the Awfully Famous
