Some Last Minute Book Gift Ideas

 I love giving books as gifts and this year I am giving 8 books to family members including myself. Shhhhh! It will be wrapped up from Santa. 

Come along with Grover and Elmo in this fun, interactive refresh of the classic storybook: Sesame Street: Another Monster at the End of This Book: An Interactive Adventure (Studio Fun International; ISBN: 978-0794441746; Hardcover $14.99; Ages 3-5)!

In this interactive version of the classic Sesame Street story, Grover tries everything to keep Elmo from turning another page and reaching the monster at the end of the book. With lift-the-flaps, sliders, and pop-up elements that kids will delight in, Another Monster is sure to be a new story time favorite!

My kids loved the book The Monster At The End of The Book as does my preschool class. It is a classic and so funny. This book is just as good and will be a classic. Grover tries so hard to make sure Elmo doesn't get to the end of the book but what fun is that? It has to happen right?!

My kids love the flaps and flips that make this book interactive and come on kids just love Elmo! There is a lot of fun between these pages. I love the clasp just to get into the book.

Disney The Nutcracker and the Four Realms: A Center Stage Pop-Up Book (Studio Fun International; ISBN: 978-0794442033; Hardcover $12.99; Ages 6-8) is a new companion title timed to the release of the major motion picture!

This beautiful format is a perfect holiday gift for fans of this classic tale, full of colorful characters and no shortage of surprises.

This is a stunning book and while there are only 10 pages, girls will love the beautiful scenes. The Ballerina stars in the center of each pop up and while it is a short book it is very pretty.

This book is beyond cool. We are huge Star War fans. My husband will be getting this book for Christmas so he can put the Millennium Falcon together. He has been a fan since a small boy and will love this. The price on this book is amazing too. I was really impressed. 

I Am a Wonder Woman by Ellen Bailey (Portable Press; ISBN: 978-1684125487; Paperback $14.99; Ages 9-11; 128 pages) is an entertaining and inspirational look at some of the most influential women in history, from ancient times to the modern day, including lesser known visionaries such as Annie Londonderry and Britta Tott, to household names like the Brontës, Cleopatra, Hellen Keller, J.K. Rowling, and more. Each page is filled with amazing stories about the women who have shaped the world and inspired others to follow in their footsteps. Readers can step into the lives of these pioneers by completing unique activities and answering thought-provoking questions for themselves. Quirky artwork throughout helps bring each woman’s story to life.

The 411:

I love this book and cannot wait to sit down with my daughter and fill out the pages as we read about these amazing women. I love the quirkiness if the illustrations along with the fascinating stories of these influential women in history.

Great price point on all of these books. They are all totally worth it!
