With the holidays approaching I always try to make a thoughtful Christmas list so that I don’t overspend and so that we’re purchasing things that our children will use and love. Today, I’m sharing with you a bookish themed gift list that includes many items my own kids have cherished and enjoyed.

I got this as a gift for my daughter’s last birthday and she loves to use it to keep organized and take notes for her YouTube channel. Perfect for any kid who wants to document their reading. There are also reading lists to inspire the discovery of more titles they may have not heard of.
We bought this for my daughter and she had tons of fun with it. The kit includes bookplates but also can be used to play “library” which has always been something both of my girls have enjoyed playing together.
We are a huge audiobook family around here. I love the ease of iPads and Kindles, but hate the screens. Yoto has come up with a solution that I’m purchasing this year for our youngest. I plan to use it for classic books and music and it’s also portable.
Christmas is wonderful time to invest in a boxed set of books for your favorite bibliophile. They can definitely be expensive, but also can be collected and loved for years to come. I only buy boxed sets that I KNOW will be loved, so often this ends up being a series we’ve already read, but that I know will be cherished and reread. This year we are looking at this newly republished editions of Patricia M. St. John, The Mother-Daughter Book Club, or The Wingfeather Saga. Other favorites include Harry Potter, Ramona Quimby, and the Puffin in Bloom Collection.

Classic Graphic Novels
The Illiad adapted by Gareth Hinds is one of my son’s best-loved books. He’s read it over and over again. Hinds’ illustrations are fantastic and he takes classic literature and accurately adapts them into graphic novels, which makes them perfect for creating a love of literature before a kid is ready to tackle the original work. He has great adaptations of The Odyssey, MacBeth, and Beowulf, among others.
