My View:
Giving the gift of books to children, any time of the year, is always my number one option for present giving. Start early, read to your baby, ready to your toddlers, read with your early reader. Read, read, read.

This book is beautifully illustrated, with engaging, hand drawn images and sprinkled with fun facts.
