The holiday season is sneaking up fast! Are you still scrambling to find the perfect gift for a certain someone? Hands down, I believe, one of the best gifts that can be given is the gift or reading. Books unlock the magic and wonder of other worlds, cultures and dreams and it’s a gift that can be “opened” again and again. In my online travels this week I have discovered several superb Book Gift Guides for young readers. Here are a few of my top picks:

A Holiday Book Gift Guide for 8-10 year-old girls- chosen and written by a girl who is that age from I Never Grew Up.

The feisty and savvy Pam from Unconventional Librarian puts her own spin on her Book Gift Guide!

Franticmommy also has a great Book Gift Guide for Kids. I see she has some WONDERFUL taste in books in her Picture Books and Middle Readers Gift Guide! 😉 From monsters to garden activities, this Holiday Gift Guide has great options for moms giving the gift of reading.

Final Note:

JUMP into a Book! Valarie Budayr joins us for BOY TALK. She is an author, editor, and ‘master magic maker’ at Jump Into a Book.  This is a great resource for all of  the kids on your list.  Meet her below.  Save your seat for BOY TALK here. 

Note from Valarie: As the holiday season approaches, consider adding the gift of books to your shopping list. There are many wonderful booklists available for parents looking to give their child the gift of reading and adventure. A book makes a great gift because they are meaningful, beautiful, portable, appealing, and inexpensive and it’s a gift that can be opened again and again. Books are the perfect gift for any age and a gift that doesn’t require batteries or sizing instruction!
