It's often true that I am the dreaded Aunt that always gives books as gifts instead of toys - whups. This Christmas, my sister-in-law told me that my nephew actually wants early reader books so you can imagine my glee! To make the gift more fun, I glued the following inside the cover of each book:
I also wrote in the information on each, gave him some extras for future books, and of course a date stamper so he can have fun making it look like a real library card! For those interested, after doing some research, these are the books that are being gifted:
National Geographic Kids: Polar Bears...how cool is it that National Geographic has early reader books on TONS of different subjects??
Flat Stanley: His Original Adventure! - I remember my little sister loving Flat Stanley as a kiddo.
Ride, Fly Guy, Ride! This one is just super fun :)
Ellray Jakes Walks the Plank!
The Legend of Diamond Lil...this one is more of a beginning chapter book - and who doesn't love a mystery?
The Cat on the Mat is Flat...this one is also a longer book but looks super-fun!
I also bought him a few early readers from Target that feature superheroes because I know that he loves Spiderman! Hopefully he likes his gift and becomes a little bookworm like his Aunt Kat :)
