Books as Gifts
Holiday Buying Guides
Reading Rockets' annual holiday buying guide makes it easy to find great books kids will enjoy! Click below to view this year's recommended books:
The Books as Gifts guide was created by Reading Rockets' children's literature editor, Maria Salvadore. It features books so engaging that your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or student will delight in them over and over again.
Each book was chosen based on age, reading level, topic, writing quality, illustrations, and overall excellence. We make a special effort to highlight newly published books and exceptional audio books. Also included are great books for sharing, talking over, and thinking about with an adult.
For the holidays, for birthdays, or just for fun, give books as gifts and watch kids read!
