Gifts for Young Readers
I’ve been a reader for as long as I can remember. I started reading independently when I was three years old, and my mom would tell you that I’ve had a book within arm’s reach ever since!
I’ve also put together a list of gifts for book lovers, which includes a variety of presents and ideas for readers of all ages.
Early reader or not, I think reading is for everyone, and some kid readers need more encouragement in that area than others.
Honestly, reading is hands down my favorite thing to do. A few years ago I graduated from paperbacks and hardcovers to a Kindle, and it’s changed my life! I read more than ever (at least 100 books each year), and young Marybeth would have loved any of these gifts for readers!
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the young book lover, I’m sure there’s something in this list that’s perfect for the kid on your gift list. I’m also almost positive there’s at least two unique reading gift ideas that they’ve never seen before.
So forget those Barnes and Noble gift cards. Instead, aim for a unique reading gift that will help them enjoy reading even more than they do now!
