Marshmallow Mondays

Gift A Book

You’ve heard me say it before, so here is my annual “books make great gifts” holiday post.    If you’re still shopping and not sure what to buy, here are my personal suggestions for all of the bookworms in your life, big and small.

Book Suggestion #1:  Board Books by Eric Carle.  My daughter absolutely loves these books.  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is by far her favorite Eric Carle book at the moment.  She loves the simple, repetitive text and the large, colorful illustrations of various animals are very eye-catching.  Her favorite part of the book is the last two pages, where she can point to all of the different animals. has these books at great prices, and they fit nicely into stockings!

Book Suggetsion #2:  The Grandparent BookThis unique keepsake makes it easy and fun for grandparents to share their stories with their grandchildren. The Grandparent Book is organized into sections, each devoted to a stage of life: childhood, teenhood, adulthood, and grandhood. With prompts for collecting grand memories and pages for grandparents and grandkids to fill out together, this journal is a great fuss-free way to bring generations together.

Book Suggestion #3:  Baby’s First Journal.  Capture the precious memories of your baby’s first year in this spiral and cloth bound journal. With special sections for your baby’s “firsts” and favorites, photographs, captions and more, all the important moments will be saved for years to come. Includes six colorful pockets for holding mementos and keepsakes. Makes a great gift for the expecting parents in your life!

Book Suggestion #4:  Heard On The Playground.  Kids say and do funny things every day. has found a way to share and remember all of those silly moments.  Visit their website and you can submit your child’s funny comments for others to enjoy.  The website was such a success that a book has been created with some of the best comments from kids all over the country.  This book is pure, honest entertainment and takes us inside the fascinating mind of a child.  It makes a great gift for teachers or grandparents. You haven’t heard it all until you’ve read this book.  I must also add that I am very excited to have Marshmallow Mondays listed in the blog contributors section of this book!

Book Suggestion #5: Barefoot Books World Atlas.   Divided by geographical region, the Barefoot Books World Atlas looks at the way in which communities and cultures across the  world have been shaped by their natural environment, and at the ideas and initiatives which are shaping the future. An atlas for the twenty-first century, it shows how all parts of the planet are interconnected and looks at the challenges which face us all in  creating a sustainable future. A great resource for kids of all ages.
