Children love stories that take them into another realm where magic, make believe, and monsters truly exist. They can visualize all the players and interact with the drama as it unfolds. They naturally connect with heartwarming and whimsical stories that portray likeable characters, magical kingdoms, and happy endings.
If you’re looking for gift books for the holidays, then Chronicle Books is the place to check out. They carry a huge variety of titles for all ages, and we love them. Here are a few suggestions that I think kids would love.
A Story Book Knight is about a sweet little medieval mouse, Leo, who loves to read and be a peace with all creatures. His parents send me off to fight dragons, but along the way he’s met with dangerous beasts and situations that he turns into peaceful ones. The characters are so endearing, the story captivating and the graphics are beautiful. The little kids in my family have read and reread this story umpteen times. They absolutely adore this book.
Losing a tooth is an exciting and notable event in the life of a child – what will the tooth fairy bring? This cute little book shares the daily life of a tooth fairy. This one rides a toothbrush and is super fast. But, some kids, like Johnny Withers and many other kids set a trap to catch the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy is street and kid-savvy and loves her job. The animations if fabulous and the kids loved the story.
Do you remember that special stuffed toy when you were a child? Henry & Leo is about a little boy’s devotion to his favorite toy, a stuffed lion named Leo. Leo isn’t just any stuffed toy, he’s Henry’s best friend and brother. He is as real as a tree, a cloud, the sun, the moon, the stars, and the wind. But when the two are accidentally separated, no one in Henry’s family believes Leo is real enough to find his way home. This is a lovely story every kid will resonate with wholeheartedly.
I can remember reading Curious George when I was a kid and pass them down to my own family. This treasured classic began seventy-five years ago for the curious, lovable monkey, Curious George. In this anniversary edition of the original book, George meets the man in the yellow hat in the jungle and goes to live in a new home, but oh, what happened! Though trying to be good, George is still very curious and takes a swim in the ocean, escapes from jail, and goes for a flying ride on a bunch of balloons. Special anniversary cover with foil and spot gloss make this edition a must-have for any children’s book collection. Includes code for bonus downloadable audio read by the actor, producer, and director John Krasinski.
It’s approaching the holiday season, and gift-giving occasions abound. Books make great stocking stuffers and they entertain on those dreary winter days. Swing by Chronicle Books and check out all their titles.
