Gift Guide for Girlies : Part 3

So we’ve covered the something they want, something they “need”, and the oh so fun, something to wear, but now it’s time for perhaps the most important of them all –

read

1. For any kid – big or small – Dragons Love Tacos is hilarious and leaves you wanting more (of the book and tacos.) 2. We dig the Crayon series. The Days the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home are enjoyable & clever reads for any age. 3. A personal fave in this household (hmmm, wonder why) Gaston is a charming book about fitting in with your family, no matter where you came from. 4. The Book with No Pictures is super annoying to read but kids LOVE IT!  They seriously LOL and I can’t help but embrace it as it was written by Office fave, B.J. Novak. 5. I am most excited to gift Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls to my daughters this year.  Read about their inspiring story and kickstarter campaign here.  It makes me feel all the feels! 6. Hello, My Name is Octicorn, is a clever tale that’s perfect for someone who’s having trouble fitting in {aren’t we all?} 7. Florabelle is a sweet story of a dreamer that drives her family nutty {ahem, Phoebe}.  I cry happy tears every time I read it to my wacky little gal with her head in the clouds. 8. In My Heart, is another tearjerker, but a great way to talk about getting in touch with your feelings with your wee ones.  I might try reading it to Horseface.screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-8-54-51-amOkay, so now my kids are at the age (2nd grade) where they are crushing chapter books on their own {hooray!} 9. They are so smitten with Mercy Watson – some cute little piggy I had never heard of that they were introduced to at school.  Mercy made the real deal list to Santa! 10. Amelia Bedelia, yep she’s still irritating and charming at the same time – so pretty much my spirit animal. 11. Ramona! 12. Phoebe is pumped for the modernized Nancy Drew series this Christmas, and I have to admit I loved these books as a girl.  13. I also find Ivy & Bean a bit annoying but the good news is we don’t have to hang out with them – and it keeps the kids amused and reading, which is truly the most wonderful gift evah.
