book ideas for holiday gifts

Books make perfect gifts for kids for the holidays.  I’ll be giving several Goosebumps and Lemony Snicket books to the kid in my house this Christmas! 

For some picture book gifting ideas for the children you know, check the several reviews on this blog.  All of those were picture books that I thought would be fun for kids to read and have read to them.  I have also checked with some end-of-the-year “best of” lists, and come up with a list of books that would make great gifts for your preschoolers and beginning readers this holiday season.  All titles are linked to the Barnes and Noble website so that you can see the book itself and read summaries and reviews of each title.  Of course, nothing beats holding a book in your own hands, so be sure to visit a local bookstore and find some titles on your own, as well.  Happy gifting!

And of course, remember that you can check out most of these books at your Lane Library, as well!

    I have recently read and heartily recommend A PIGEON AND A BOY, a novel by Meir Shalev, MY FATHER’S PARADISE by Ariel Sabar, and STILL ALIVE by Ruth Kluger. Last 2 are autobiographical, and all 3 are well-written and interesting; all 3 would make great Chanukah gifts to yourself and the readers in your life.
