Board Book Gift Ideas
This collection of fiction and non-fiction books were written for infants and toddlers. They are made from durable materials so little ones can’t cause too much damage!
Picture Book Gift Ideas
Picture books are a wonderful way to encourage a love of reading. Reading picture books is FUN, whether by yourself or with a grown-up or friend. This collection includes gorgeous book sets to books with an accompanying soft toy. They are all accompanied by beautiful illustrations.
Beginning Chapter Book Gift Ideas
Beginning chapter books are created for emerging independent readers. This selection includes books with limited text to ones with complex vocabulary and sentence structure. Easy-to-digest chapters break up lengthier texts. These develop patience as they can’t always be read in one session.
Graphic Novel Gift Ideas
These box sets include some of the most popular graphic novels available. You will also find some new titles. Graphic novels support children who struggle with traditional text by promoting literacy and improving self-esteem. They improve reading development for those struggling with language acquisition. The illustrations provide contextual clues to understand the written narrative.
Chapter Book Gift Ideas
Once a child is an independent reader they can move onto chapter books. As with the other collections the difficulty of the text varies greatly. Make sure you check this before purchasing any book. Some still have illustrations but most of them are just text with longer chapters and more complex storylines.
Non-Fiction Book Gift Ideas
There is something for everyone within these non-fiction recommendations. As with the chapter books, research the difficulty before purchasing. Also make sure you know the interests of the child you are buying for! Non-fiction books are wonderful for answering children’s questions and strengthening vocabulary and literacy knowledge.
