It’s almost Christmas and when it comes to shopping for our 6 year old or any other young children in our lives, I prefer to give the gift of reading. BOOKS make great gifts because no matter what your child enjoys, there is nothing like a new book to read to themselves, to you, to their favorite stuffed animal, for you to read to them at night, to take along on a trip..the ways to enjoy a book are endless! If you are ready to rebuild your home library with the best books for your little ones, ages 4-8, then this Amazon list is a great place to start!
- ELI’s 1st WINTER CARNIVAL by Lisa Bowen
This book will have you excited for Winter, as Little Eli enjoys making snow angels, and helping his family make a silly snowman at his first winter carnival! The joys of winter fun and quality time with family are wonderfully illustrated in this 36 page book for recommended for age level: Birth-8, grade level: preschool – 5.
This rhyming book inspired our recent trip to the NC Zoo and my latest hair do..lol! Smarty Locks is so excited for her class trip to the zoo, but when plans change she comes up with a clever plan of what to do! The lesson of ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’ is loud and clear for young readers ages 5-8 and their parents to hear!
As a young black girl who enjoys ballet herself, my daughter was thrilled to receive this diverse book. The author, who is 18 years old, retells an inspirational story based on true experiences of overcoming discrimination when she was 7 years old. I Just Kept Spinning relays an important message that no matter how you wear your hair, or what you look like, to have self-love and always follow your dreams!
If you ever had a child ask, “If our house has no chimney, how will Santa get in?” ..this book will answer the question! Prior to Christmas Eve, give this boxed gift set which includes a hardcover, dust jacketed copy of the book and keepsake key and ribbon. We plan to start a new family tradition of hanging this decorative Santa key on the door and unlock the magic this year! This book gift set is available for purchase at www.nochimney.com.

We loved this picture book which not only spoke to our love of travel and food but celebrates culture and diversity! When Giovanni learns his grandmother is serving ‘rice and rock’ to his friends who are coming over for Sunday dinner, he worries they will think the traditional Jamaican dish is weird. However, he discovers other places where people eat rice and rocks too and that its these delicious similarities that bring us all together!
There are so many amazing books our daughter read this year that I would recommend to give as a gift but these were her favorite five. On #outandaboutAva ‘s Christmas wish list this year is Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vasht Harrison (avail for pre-order now on Amazon).
So if you are reading this Santa, she has been a good girl and would love this book! Check out a sneak peek of the book >>here.
