I have always said that I love to give books as gifts and I still feel that way. I am sure that is the librarian in me but I just love giving gifts that encourage reading as it truly is a gift that keeps on giving all year long. Each of these have not only been fun for Big Sis and Lil Sis but for me as well as we all have plenty to learn....even from children's books! Wrap these big books up for the holidays as they truly do make great gifts.
