The Stratford Library Children's Librarians have compiled some suggestions for good books to give children as gifts.  You can see the entire list here.

Whether it's the girl who fell in love with her chocolate cake (Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake )

or Letter E falling down on the job (E-Mergency),

or the heartwarming story of Pit-Bull Rescue (Saving Audie)

this list provides great ideas for children of all ages.
