What I've Read | Vol.13 {Favorite Children's Books for the Gift Giving Season}

It's already the first of December and Christmas Day is quickly approaching. I have decided to compile a list of my favorite children's books for gift giving. Of course those who do not celebrate the holidays, these make great gifts throughout the year.

The Velveteen Rabbit
Author:  Margery Williams

Goodnight Moon
Author: Margaret Wise Brown

The Little Engine That Could
Author Watty Piper

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Author: Eric Carle

**Of course every child should have at least two ALL the Dr. Suess books**

My childrens favorite was...

Charlotte's Web
Author: E.B. White

The Spiderwick Chronicles
Author/Illustrator: Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black

The Chronicles of Narnia
Author: C.S. Lewis

Harry Potter Series
Author. J.K. Rowling

**For those teenagers and adults, one of my daughters favorites**

The Lord of the Rings
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Ok, this is a short list considering all the books out there and honestly you really can't go wrong with these. Unless the child you are giving them too has already read them!
