It’s that time of year when families start thinking about stocking stuffers for kids. If you are looking for something practical, fun, yet affordable (and fits in the stocking) you have come to the right place! BOOKS fit perfectly into helping balance gift giving with the concept of giving kids one of each type of item: Want, Need, Wear, Read. Here are my top Stocking Stuffer Read ideas.
Infants and Toddlers
Muddle and Match books are perfect for little hands. A board book with divided pages allow readers to mix and match characters and related stories! The alliteration is fun, creates silly stories, and helps early readers hear letter sounds.
This soft Helly, Baby book is wonderful for little ones. Easy to wash, the firm handle provides a perfect gripping spot with the soft pages easy to turn (or chew).
That’s not my plane is a fun touchy-feely book for infants and toddlers. The textures and high contrasting illustrations on each page provide a delightful for for all. The repeating story gives kids a first book to memorize and read to you!
Preschool – Kindergarten
Bedtime is always better with a story! Animal Stories for Bedtime provide 10 stories to choose from. Find a new favorite to read each night, or mix it up!
Sticker Dolly books, including the Dream Jobs title, allow kids to dress up the characters and make up their own stories! These are very popular in our house!
100 things to do on a Car Trip will entertain for hours. These are perfect, especially if you plan to travel for the holidays!
The Astronaut’s Handbook is packed full of information all astronauts need to know! Perfect for the adventurer in your life!
