'Tis The Season

'Tis the Season to Hit the Road. . .

and buy those presents!

My family knows what they’re going to receive from me each Christmas. The only surprise for them is what book is hidden inside the glittery wrapping. And each season I search for both the classics and something new. I thought that since some of you might be on the hunt for book gifts I’d share what I’m considering putting under the tree. Family: DO NOT PEEK!

The Classics for young readers’ libraries

The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore
The Twelve Days of Christmas by Accord Publishing
The Elf on the Shelf by Carol Aebersold
Night Before the Night Before Christmas by Natasha Wing

Olive, the Other Reindeer by J. Otto Seibold
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss

Hi Lee - yes I've bought books already - the only challenge is .. if the recipients don't turn up in Sussex - then they need to be 'lugged' up to them! But great ideas ... and I buy through the year ... so theoretically no rush! I'm sure there will be lots of colouring books flying off the shelves this year for all ages ... cheers Hilary

If anyone were going to give me a gift I think I'd prefer a book. There is something very lasting about a book as a gift.

And you can share it with a friend. I still have books people gave me as a kid. I've loaned them, re-read them and thoroughly enjoyed them over the years.
