Every child should have a library of books that they read and look at again and again. We have many favorites, but for our holiday gift guide, my kids and I narrowed our list down to the books we feel are the best of the best. When you do your holiday shopping this year, add a few children’s books to your list to help a child start building a treasure trove of adventure, wonder, and imagination.
If you have any suggestions to add to our list, leave a comment below and share with us.
Here’s to a wonderful holiday season and happy reading!
