Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1: Books

I'm a book lover.  Always have been, and always will be.  In fact, one of my worst fears in life is that one of my kids will not enjoy reading.  It's kept me awake at night.

We push books at our house.  At least once a day we have the two older kids sit quietly {doesn't always work} and read.  Even though neither can actually "read" just yet, we feel it is important for them to see the photos, look at the letters and become familiar with a story.  I hope someday they love reading as much as we do.

So...I've compiled a pretty cool book list for your holiday gift giving.  Some I've read, some just come recommended.  If you are like me you love a good book as a gift.  When I'm done reading it I try and pass it on to someone else.  Maybe you should do the same?
All books are available to purchase directly through the following Amazon affiliate links.

Food: A Love Story {kindle version}
