Unlike toys that break and lose their appeal after a few days, great books will stay with a child from the cradle to the grave.
I’m over at Year Round Homeschool today, sharing some great books to give your children (or the children in your life) for Christmas or any time of the year.
From my post:
Growing up I didn’t care for dolls or toys at all really. Give me a book and I was the happiest kid on the block. I vividly remember the Christmas my aunt gave me Little Women, unabridged. I was in middle school and felt so proud to have such a big book all for myself. Another special Christmas gift was when I received The Complete Works of William Shakespeare from my cousin. If you’re thinking, NERD, then you’re right, but there’s something magical about receiving a great book.
If you have a bookworm in your family or if you want to cultivate a greater love of reading in your child, here are several suggestions of great books to give this Christmas, organized by age.
Come by to see what I recommend, and add your own book suggestions in the comments.
Have you ever received a really good book for Christmas? What was it?
What book(s) would you add to my list?
