Holiday Gift Suggestions: Books for Kids

Wondering what to get the children in your life this holiday season? We have you covered! Our resident children's book expert, Anna, has these suggestions:

These are my favorite hand-sells for the holiday season, from board books to chapter books. They're new releases from this fall, so it's pretty safe that the person who you're giving them to doesn't already have them. They are all good stories to share with your loved ones during the holiday, or a great way to make good use out of a quiet moment. --Anna
