Holiday Gift Guides

Books make great gifts! Our annual holiday buying guide helps you find the perfect books for all the children in your life.

For the holidays, for birthdays, or just for fun, give books as gifts and watch kids read! These book gift guides are created by our children’s literature expert, Maria Salvadore, who also writes our Page by Page blog. We hope that the featured books are so engaging that your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, friend, or student will delight in them over and over again.

We make a special effort to highlight high-quality fiction and nonfiction, newly published books, diverse books, and exceptional audio books. Also included are great books for sharing, talking over, and thinking about with an adult. 

Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them.”

Shel Silverstein
