Read-alouds are the best holiday gifts for young readers because they help them discover the excitement in receiving a book — all while building their foundation for reading skills!
Building a solid reading habit from a young age has tremendous benefits for kids, now and later down the road. Holidays are a great time to curl up and get cozy with a book together to create memories centered around reading with your family.
Start by laughing through the book There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Spoon!, from the famous There Was an Old Lady series! Meanwhile, Princess Truly #6: I Am Mighty highlights important social-emotional lessons and helps little ones gain the confidence to overcome any obstacle, no matter how big or small.
Plus, enjoy books with iconic characters such as Clifford in Clifford: The Big Red Friend Story Box! There is also Peppa Pig: A Magical Christmas — an adorable picture book about the magic of Christmas.
