The world is truly becoming a smaller place. It is easy to send a gift from one end of the country to the other and have it arrive in time to put a huge smile on the recipient's face! What child doesn't like to be remembered by a Grandparent or Favorite Aunt or Uncle? Just like we enjoy getting mail our children also like to receive something special too!
Here we go with my Review of 5 Favorite Books for Little Ones.
Books are one of my favorite gifts for young children and they are great to send across the miles too! There are endless titles for young minds and stories that will take them to all corners of their world or the larger world too. Toddlers love picture books or books that teach little life lessons and there are so many lovely titles available for little minds. One of my favorites is written by a friend of mine and I purchased it for my Grandchildren. It's a great story about co-operation, helpfulness, and friendship. Just like the story, the book is a wonderful show of support for Ronald McDonald charities that helps sick children and their families. So I feel really good about supporting such endeavors. Susan Zutautas has a way with words and my Grandchildren love the story.
The Day Mr. Beaver meets a Moose is a great story, with lively illustrations and a cute story too!
I love to send books to my favorite little people that are fun to read, teach lessons and support a great cause. Boy, oh boy, does this book ever cover all those bases. It also helps my friend become better known as a Children's Author! So for me, this is a winner!
Books that support a great cause make me want to purchase that book even more.
Susan has another book available too, I think this one will be the next one I purchase for my Grandchildren. Called Mr. Beaver Plans a Party, it looks like it too would be enjoyed by my Grandchildren. Who doesn't like the idea of planning a party?
These Last Three Books are all time Favorites of Mine! Some are in the top 50 List of Books for Children.I promised you 5 books at the start of this Review This article and I'll give you the titles of the next three Because a promise is a promise. Sticking to 5 books though is really tough.
The next book is one of my son's favorites! Herbert the Timid Dragon. by Mercer Mayer is a great story that everyone enjoys. My daughter in law resorted to buying one used, my son's copy had disappeared over the years, and he really missed it. It has become his daughter's favorite book too!
There are a whole bunch of Mercer Mayer books and all of them are really fun and easy to read to your children or for them to read by themselves. You may find a lot of them are out of print, so when you go to flea markets or Bazaars keep your eyes open for these treasures.
Another book I love to give as a gift to children is a Dr. Suess classic! Oh the Places You'll Go! This book has such a nice story and it's written by one of the best children's authors ever. Who hasn't indulged their inner child with the writings of Dr. Suess? I know I have and will continue so long as I have more grandchildren coming. This is a winner in every sense of the word. Engaging and entertaining for young minds everywhere.
If you have a child that needs some encouragement, this last book is a great find.
Last but not least on this Review is another favorite of mine. I love animals and they are always a hit with kids too. This book makes you giggle as Gerald the Giraffe finds out that he can do things that giraffes aren't supposed to be able to do. It's a story of encouragement. It will touch those young ones who are having a hard time or don't quite fit in. Gerald the giraffe gives them a dose of, "I can do it", in the nicest way possible. Giraffes Can't Dance will have your children and grandchildren smiling from ear to ear.
Conclusion: If you need a good book for a little one, any of these 5 will be a hit!So there you have it, the 5 books that are my favorites right now.
It's just a small installment of books that I would love to see sent to all children and grandchildren all over the country. They have great lessons imparted in a way that doesn't seem like a lesson at all. Children of all ages love these books, and they are fun too!
Reading to children and having them read to you is one of the nicest gifts anyone can give a child. Their imaginations will soar when written words are read and become part of their lives. A child who reads and loves to read will become an engaged adult with a deep love for the written word.
What a great Valentine's Day gift that is indeed!
