The Best Books for Gift-Giving!

Springtime is for growing readers, but it’s also for celebrations! It’s finally starting to get warm and sunny, and flowers and trees are blossoming all over the place. It seems like every other week there is a springtime holiday to commemorate! Special days like Easter, Earth Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduation are all perfect times to give a child a good book. Luckily for you, Scholastic Book Clubs has chosen the best books for every spring holiday and put them all in one sunny Spring Gift Books flyer.

For younger readers, there are some great new read-aloud picture books, including Olivia Opens a Lemonade Stand (I mean, who doesn’t love a pig in a lemon costume?!) and Snowmen All Year. The Usborne First Encyclopedia Pack features four engaging science books and is a wonderful way to introduce curious young minds to a world of knowledge. For older readers, there’s Bless This Mouse, a compelling and humorous new novel from Newbery author Lois Lowry, and Titanic, Book One: Unsinkable, the riveting first book of a new trilogy from favorite author Gordon Korman. Titles like Mirror Mirror, a unique collection of fairy tales told in verse, and The LEGO® Book, an eye-popping celebration of creativity, make perfect gifts for readers of all ages. Then there’s my personal favorite, What’s New Cupcake?, an adorable cookbook featuring…you guessed it, cupcakes!  Just think of all the reading and baking you could be doing this spring!

  1. Good stuff! It can be so hard to find gifts for readers (young and old), but these are some solid original ideas. Thanks for posting!

  2. A book is always welcome as a gift, because most people like to read. In my case this never failed and as a recommendation: always choose books you’ve read because the title of a book can be tricky.
    A book you love has a bigger chance to be on your friend’s taste.
