These books are great for boys and girls from birth to preschool. Will you promote literacy this holiday season? Let me know what books you give as presents!

  1. I always give books as gifts, and I am getting so many great ideas for Christmas gifts from this blog hop. I hadn’t heard of The Prog Frince, but I read your review and am convinced I must now own it. The title reminds me of Runny Babbit by Shel Silverstein…so much fun. Thanks for sharing these great book ideas at the Kidlit Blog Hop.

  2. Oh, my! I don’t have any little kids to buy books for any more. My own teens kind of like to choose their own :). But I always get my big brother a book for his birthday (right after Xmas). Maybe I should send him some of these–just to get him ready for his second childhood (since no grandkids are on the horizon yet) 😀

    Seriously, though, I love to give books to people of all ages, because discovering a new book/author is great fun!

    • It is so much fun! I tried to buy my brother a book for Christmas, but I mentioned the title to him and he checked it out from the library. Back to the drawing board!
      P.S. It was The Martian by Andy Weir, and it was the best book I’ve read lately!

  3. Perfect timing for this post! I just started Christmas shopping and was looking for books for my grandson. Recommendations are always best! 🙂

  4. I just posted my own list of books that should be under your Christmas tree (bit.ly/1rXGX53), but Hervé Tullet’s latest Mix It Up! is fantastic and if you don’t have his first one, Press Here, you should. If Kids Ruled the World makes all ages happy and Utterly Amazing Science is absolutely fantastic for science loving (or booking loving) kids.
