As I was thinking about Christmases past the other night, some of the best memories I have are of receiving books and I still have nearly every book I ever got as a present. Over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas, I'll be making some recommendations on some great books to give for Christmas this year- books that will entertain, teach, and hopefully, be around for a lifetime.
We've all heard that famous saying, "Christmas is for children." This week, I've put together some of my favorite books for Middle Readers (ages 8-12) from this year. Hopefully, these suggestions might help you with some ideas for your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, or even the paperboy.
I hope you like them.
