Give the Gift of Reading!

December 6, 2013

It’s December! Time for family get-togethers, good food, cookies, decorations, and everything else that makes the holiday season special–including shopping! Before you head out to scout the malls and department stores for gift ideas, check out our Give the Gift of Reading holiday book list! Featured on this list are brand new holiday books for kids (and parents, too!), picked out by the Services for Children staff. From classic stories such as The Twelve Days of Christmas by Jane Cabrera to new favorites like Dear Santasaurus by Stacy McAnulty, there are plenty of titles to choose from! And if you can’t decide on a book to buy and would like to read each and every one, the book covers on the Give the Gift of Reading page link to our catalog so you can check one out!

Each year, the Services for Children staff also pick out their favorite books of the year and recommend them for the library’s Give the Gift of Reading gift book list. If you are looking for a book the child on your gift list can read throughout the year, this list is for you! This year’s picks include a wide selection of books ranging from early literacy board books to awesome nonfiction even adults will enjoy!
