Holiday Gifts for the Young Readers in Your Life

When it comes to children's books, there are so many excellent choices. To help with your shopping, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite books for this gift-giving season. You’ll find titles for all ages.

We’ve stocked up on the titles we think will make the best gifts. However, supply chain issues and shipping delays will significantly impact holiday shopping this year. For the most satisfying gift giving experience, we encourage you to shop now while our supplies are strong.

Below is a selection of some of the gifts we think young readers will enjoy. We offer many more holiday-specific books for HanukkahChristmasKwanzaa, and Solstice. And we love to recommend books for every level of reader: picture booksearly readerschapter books, and young adult.
