I’m so excited to be sharing my first gift guide with you today!

As a literacy teacher, former 5th grade teacher, and mom, I feel uniquely qualified to write a gift guide for the 20 best holiday books for children. 🙂

Holiday Gift Guide The 20 Best Holiday Books for Kids

I wanted this guide to be useful for people who would like to buy books for children, but have no clue what children at certain ages may enjoy.  The age categories should be used as a general guideline, but they certainly aren’t meant to mean that a 2 year old couldn’t enjoy a book that is in the 3-6 year category.  I personally own almost all of these books and plan to read them to my 3 year old this December. 😉
