Have you started Christmas shopping yet?  Overwhelmed by all of the latest gadgets and complex toys for the children in your life?  If so, consider going back to basics and give the gift of a book for Christmas.

Here are 10 reasons why books make great gifts…

  1. They’re easy to wrap.
  2. They don’t require batteries.
  3. They don’t come with instructions.
  4. Chances are, they won’t be sold out after Black Friday.
  5. They’re easy to find.
  6. They don’t make annoying noises, or require your kid to make an annoying noise while reading.
  7. They don’t come in packaging that requires Grandpa’s  pocket knife to open.
  8. They never go out of style.
  9. They make great stocking stuffers.
  10. You probably won’t have to worry that someone else is buying the same book as you.

So now that you’re convinced a book is the perfect gift to give to the children in your life this Christmas, be sure to check out the great selection of books and holiday music at Barefoot Books.  Holiday titles include The Gift, Fireside Stories, The Miracle of the First Poinsettia, One City, Two Brothers, Babushka,  and A Calendar of Festivals.  Holiday CD’s include Christmas Around The World, New Orleans Christmas and A Family Christmas
