Holiday book gift guide, two classic favorites from Running Press

Two fun book favorites for holiday gift giving that are timeless:

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: It’s Show Time!
 BE JOYFUL: Peanuts Wisdom to Carry You Through 

Books make great gifts, and every Christmas my children receive a pile of books from their grandmother! Before long, they were reading to themselves. Buy your children books, go to your local library, just get books in their hands and watch them grow and learn. 

Read to your children, read with them, and listen to them read to you.

You can never have too many books.


Jump on over to Running Press for easy purchasing of these and more great titles.
