The Gift of Experiences

This is the perfect year to think outside the box when it comes to holiday gifts. Rather than a mountain of presents that will all too quickly become outdated or broken, give the gift of a special experience. The Gift of Experiences can give your family something to look forward to and enjoy together and share in special memories that last much longer than the holiday season. Here are some ideas to get you started!

Holiday gift ideas…. Great books for your favorite reader

I love to talk books, and I am constantly on the hunt for books that will get students talking. I know I have found a winner when my younger students break into applause at the end or my older students create a list for who is next to borrow a chapter book.

The following recommendations are a few of my hot-off-the-press favorites, all published in the last two years, and books my students keep talking about.  A holiday break is around the corner – a time just begging for a new book. These would all make excellent holiday gifts or great finds at your library.
