It's that time! Gift guides are popping up everywhere, and everyone has the "perfect" list of "it" items that you absolutely, without a doubt, no ifs ands or butts, must have. Let me convince you that the perfect gift for anyone in your life is the gift of a book.
- A book is easy and affordable to buy, easy to wrap, and easy to transport if you are travelling away from home this holiday season.
- Parents will appreciate a gift that doesn't require batteries, isn't noisy, doesn't have five million pieces that will inevitably get lost, and stimulates their child's creativity.
- Books are the gift that keeps on giving! They can be read over and over, enjoyed again and again. Books are the gift of time - time spent peacefully reading alone or time spent with a parent or caring adult reading it together.
Have I convinced you yet?
When my first child was born, I read him picture books everyday, and honestly, it made me feel silly. He was an infant! Surely, it was silly to read to a baby who can't really understand the words. I was wrong! It is so important to read to babies beginning at the newborn stage. Here is a list of the latest new releases that are sure to please those babies in your life and the parents who read to them too!
