The Christmas season may only come once a year, but birthdays happen year-round!
Birthdays for kids (and adults too!) are an exciting occasion filled with fun, smile, cake, and presents. Though we would never suggest not getting the customary toy gifts to celebrate yet around trip around the sun, we would like parents to consider adding the gift of books to your shopping list. Why? Oh, my goodness…where do we begin.
To start, reading a book can be a solitary act, or as a family. Books can be \”opened\” again and again and enjoyed repeatedly. Traditional books are still a wonderful way to invite a child into the world of reading and imagination.
There is a lot to be said for the tactile satisfaction books provide. Kids who read a physical book are not only getting mental stimulation, they are exploring worlds, cultures, adventures and traditions far beyond their own front door.
So where do you begin when it comes to locating quality books that can be great gifts. There are many wonderful booklists available in a wide variety of places that can act as a pool of choices for parents on the hunt for a specific book for a specific age.
For parents looking to give their child the gift of reading and adventure. A book makes a great gift because they are meaningful, beautiful, portable, appealing, and inexpensive and it\’s a gift that can be opened again and again. Books are the perfect gift for any age and a gift that doesn’t require batteries or sizing instruction!
