Not done shopping for every one yet? Don't know what to give this year for Christmas? No matter who you buy for, a book makes a great gift. You might think that it wouldn't be a gift for everyone as everyone isn't a reader. But even reluctant readers (adults and children) find value in books when the topic is relevant. Here are a few recommendations for a variety of ages and reasons.
Sally Lloyd-Jones is a new picture book with brief rhyming text and wonderful pictures. This book is short enough for a preschooler but a good story for older children too. It would make a nice addition to any family's collection of Christmas books.
