As you go about your holiday shopping, keep in mind that books are a wonderful gift for anyone on your list. Many of my blog posts have featured authors and the wonderful books they write. From picture books, through middle grade and young adult, you can find something for every taste and interest. Not sure what kind of books to buy?
You can browse online to find some of the most popular books as well as Award-Winning titles. Look on the CHILDREN’S BOOK COUNCIL site for past and present titles. Books there are listed by grade and subject areas. http://www.cbcbooks.org
Brightly – a Random House Site – has a wealth of books to recommend for the holidays and beyond.
Here are a few other links to great books for all ages: http://www.kidlitauthorclub.com
The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) provides titles of it’s members who are authors and illustrators for children. https://www.scbwi.org/readinglist/
You can also ask your child’s teacher what kind of books she might welcome in the classroom. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
