Why books make wonderful gifts

15th November 2019

Did you know there are more than half a dozen religious holidays celebrated in December and many of them include traditions of gift-giving?

So, when you are thinking about the right present for the precious children on your list, consider this:

  1. Books are much easier to wrap than footballs.
  2. Books don’t hurt when you step on them in the middle of the night.
  3. Books are easy and cheap to mail.
  4. Books expose the world to your children, without exposing your children to the internet.
  5. Books don’t need to be assembled before being given.
  6. Books don’t need chargers and wires and Wifi or bluetooth or...
  7. Books never come in the wrong color or size.
  8. Books don’t irritate your allergies.
  9. When you are finished with a book, it is not empty.
  10. A book is a gift you can open again, and again, and again!
