As the holiday season quickly approaches, we want to remind everyone of the importance of giving the gift of reading. As you prep your holiday shopping list or help a child with their wish list, we understand that many gift-givers may feel stumped on which book is the “right book.” How do you pick from all the titles especially when you want to match a book to a child’s age or reading level, as well interests and hobbies?
You may ask, “which books will get the child in my life reading?”
This year, we have removed the guesswork by going straight to the source- kids themselves. Based on key findings from the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report™: 6th Edition, we created a special holiday gift guide that highlights top children’s book picks across all age ranges – from the littlest learners in your life ages 0-2 to the avid young adult readers ages 15-17.
According to the Kids & Family Reading Report, kids ages 6–17 nationwide say they want books that “make me laugh” (42%), “explore places and worlds I’ve never been” (31%), “make me think and feel” (24%), “inspire me to do something good” (24%), and many report that it “just has to be a good story” (37%).
Our children’s book gift guide features a diverse range of titles including laugh-out-loud books perfect for family read aloud time, stunning narratives that take children on an imaginative journey to other worlds, and iconic series that are guaranteed to intrigue even the most reluctant reader.
All titles are available for purchase on The Scholastic Store: http://bit.ly/Scholastic2017GiftGuide
We also have a printer-friendly version of this holiday gift guide – perfect for when you are shopping on-the-go or visiting your child’s next school-hosted Scholastic Book Fair or ordering from the latest Scholastic Book Clubs flyer.
It’s also the perfect guide to keep in your bag throughout the new year whenever you visit the local library or neighborhood bookstore. Remember, a good book never goes out of style.
Happy holidays and happy reading.
