Books on Beds

Scurrying around
trying to find the perfect gift?

The best gifts are traditions
    with meaning
        and memories.

A Book on Every Bed.
Take a book.
Wrap it.
Leave the book where Santa can find it.
Santa places the book on a child’s bed.

Children awaken to a gift
outlasting any toy—
    and the universe of imagination.

My son loved Six by Seusss, when he was little.

I still like hardcover books, but I know kids today have tablets. If your child is getting a Kindle or other tablet for Christmas, why not preload it with some books? Click on the amazon shopping cart (top left) to order e-books or paper books, or even a tablet.

The good thing about kindle books, for kids or for everyone on your shopping list--is that they arrive immediately—you’ll be sure to have it in time for Christmas.  No shipping fees either.
