Books That Make Great Gifts for Kids

December 3, 2019

It’s that magical time of year again -- the holiday season. Or, as I like to call it -- book giving season!

In my humble librarian opinion, books make great gifts. You can buy them for any age, and it’s fun to share your love of literature with others. You can give them at any special event throughout the year, too. Plus, it’s easy to pop into a bookstore and buy everything you need in one place. Or...the best free gift you can get your child is a library card!

Here are some suggestions for great books the kids in your life might enjoy!
