Reading an actual book still captivates the mind and imagination of adults and children of all ages! Screens definitely have their use and a place in our lives, but don’t discount books as a great gift option. The gift of imagination allows a child the ability to fall in love with reading a new story, traveling to a far off land, meeting characters and friends and discovering new principles and ideas. Here are some great gifts ideas to help you give the gift of a literary love.
This is a heartwarming father, daughter story! “Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it's beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her -- and her hair -- happy.”
Paired with this adorable doll, this is a great gift pairing that helps young girls exude confidence. “Meet Zoe! Zoe is the first Healthy Roots doll and she is far from average. Zoe learned to love her after she did the big chop with her mom. Together they learned step by step how to love every single one of her curls. Now she's here to help your daughter learn to love hers. She is a beautiful black doll with naturally curly hair. Her hair is just like your hair!”
“This beautifully illustrated book tells the heartwarming story of a little girl and a duckling, who both grow to understand what it means to care for each other as they learn that love is as much about letting go as it is about holding on. A little girl finds a duckling who has wandered away from the park onto the city streets, and takes it home to care for it. The baby duck requires constant attention—early morning feedings, bathing, and tidying—until the time comes to say goodbye. When her pet has grown too big for the bath, the girl takes the full-grown duck back to the pond. Afterward, she misses it and wonders if it remembers her. One day, the duck comes back—with six ducklings of her own.”
Paired with this lovely heart necklace, this gift pairing reminds your young one to always keep love and kindness to of mind!
In this bedtime story, “Mommy needs to wrangle her sweet creature in bed so that the whole family can sleep. From tigers to squirrels to snakes, the little boy dodges around his bedtime, until he is tired enough to finally sleep. His imaginative animal friends weave their way through the illustrations, eventually joining him in curling up for the night.” Paired with the cutest creature sheets, what child wouldn’t want to hurry to bed?
I know the child in your life will love getting a book for a gift!
Very Happy Gifting!
