Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about books for children…
Do you buy books as gifts for children – either your own or those of friends or family? Would you buy books for all children, or only children who are already practiced readers?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
I don’t have any children of my own, but do have young children in the family whom I do buy books for. I don’t give books as gifts to everyone, though I wouldn’t hesitate if I found one I think they’d like.
Over the past few birthdays and Christmas’ I’ve started buying gifts as presents for my cousin, Hannah. She turns 7 this week, and I’ve already picked out two books for her:
- Gail Carson Levine – Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand
- Kelly McKain – The Fairy House: Fairy Friends
I also picked out some new picture books for my cousin’s daughter, Kaitlyn, whose birthday is coming up soon. She does enjoy her books; she may just give her mother and I a run for our money in a few years.
- Eva Montanari – Witches and Fairies
- Ellie Patterson – The Tail of the Whale
- Lucy M George – The Snow Queen
