Little, Brown Young Readers has kindly offered the following four books to give away to one lucky reader of The Well-Read Child. They would make perfect holiday gifts for special young readers in your life.
South by Patrick McDonnell
This wordless picture book by the creator of the comic strip Mutts follows a little bird and the cat who helps him find his way south for the winter.
Willow Buds #2: When Toady Met Ratty by Mary Jane Begin
This is the second book in Mary Jane Begin's Willow Buds series inspired by Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. Badger introduces Toady to Ratty, and a bit of competition ensues before a trip to carnival helps them all become friends.
AMERICA: The Making of a Nation by Charlie Samuels
This is my favorite book of the bunch and would make a great gift for history loving kids of all ages. In the format of an anonymous journal, the book takes readers through the history of the United States from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the 21st century. It's full of pictures and interactive components such as flaps and fold out Declaration of Independence.
The Beginner's Guide to Bears by Gillian Shields, illustrated by Sebastien Braun
This cute book shows young children about the fun they can have with their teddy bears. At the end is a peek-a-boo mirror inviting the reader to look in it with his/her own teddy bear. I can see this book being paired with a stuffed bear to make a perfect gift for a young child.
