Toys, games, electronics — there are so many options when it comes to kids’ gifts during the holiday season. However, one of the best gifts you can give is a book. Books open the door to new ideas and they can teach kids important lessons about empathy, diversity and kindness. A book is a low-cost gift that can build stronger parent-child relationships and they can be enjoyed over and over again.
With so many options available for children’s books, we curated this list to take some of the guesswork out of purchasing a great book this holiday season.
