Black Friday Shopping Guide

So, it’s Black Friday and you have a list of children to buy holiday gifts for. What should you buy? Books, of course! A book is one of the most valuable gifts you can give a child. Reading encourages creativity. It stimulates the imagination by introducing readers to new people, places and notions. It teaches children about worlds different from their own, or helps them to articulate their own thoughts about situations the same as their own. Vocabulary and language skills improve. And the best part, reading with your child helps cultivate a wonderful bond – few things can compete with snuggling up together for a good bed-time story.

Now that you’re sold on the idea of books, here are a few links to some of my favorite books of this year:

The Children’s Book Review, named one of the ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) Great Web Sites for Kids, is a resource devoted to children’s literacy. We publish reviews and book lists of the best books for kids of all ages. We also produce author and illustrator interviews and share literacy based articles that help parents, grandparents, teachers and librarians to grow readers. This article was written and provided by one of TCBR's regular contributors.
