I always love to give books as gifts for anybody. I am giving my children 15 books for x-mas, some of them titles are Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dr. Suess books and many more. I give my Grandfather books every x-mas and his birthday and they are all mainly historical books of any era. I do not like anyone buying me books unless I specify what title and author and my hubby always seems to get it wrong, so instead I ask him for gift cards to the bookstores. I also donate books to the Toys for Tots in our town each year.

I love to give books and enjoy the challenge of choosing just the right one. Here's a few that appeared in this year's stockings.
for my 10yo granddaughter - Aquamarine by Alice Hoffman, one of my favorite authors
for my 6yo granddaughter - a beginnner's field guide to fishes for my precocious fact-seeker who loves to go fishing with her dad
for my 19yo daughter - A Wizard of Earthsea (The 1st in the Earthsea series) by Ursula K. Le Guin - A BIG HIT!
for my 13yo grandson - Red Planet by Robert Heinlein - ANOTHER BIG HIT!
for my serious scholar who only reads classics - an introduction to Stephanie Plum!
