Holidays are a wonderful time to give the gift of reading to a child by choosing a book that fits the interests and sparks the
imagination of the young reader. It can seem like a daunting task with so many titles available, but don’t be discouraged. Share your love of reading with a book gift that will become a favorite by keeping the interests of the recipients in mind.
