You know that gifting children’s books for Christmas is a great way to instill a love for reading. We’ve helped create both picture books and chapter books this year for kids from ages approximately 3 to11. Some of these authors and publishers have other books to offer as well, so check them out and support small and indie publishers across the country. If you have any of these books, please let everyone know what you think of them. 🙂
