I am a huge fan of Amazon.com for babies’ and kids’ gifts. One of my favorite items are these ABC Block Books. A very versatile, nicely packged gift (it needs no gift wrap), it costs just $16.54 on Amazon (compared to $25 on high-end baby sites) and ships free with Amazon Prime (have I mentioned how much I love Amazon Prime? For just $79 a year you get unlimited free 2-day shipping on many items…perfect for last-minute gift giving, and no minimum required. It’s a great value.).
Back to the board books. It is a 2-in-1 gift. The sturdy gift box is filled with 26 chunky mini-board books, each attractively illustrating words that start with A, B, C…etc. They can be stacked to form words, or to build whatever your child fancies. I discovered this gift when R. was a baby, and at age 3 1/2 she still plays with it. I have given it as a shower gift, a baby gift, and as 1st or 2nd birthday gifts. Happy Reading (and Building)!
