Gifts for Christmas

"To give a child a book as a present is to give the gift of an adventure in an imaginary world, or the key to a door which leads to a wealth of fascinating facts. Illustrated books have a wide appeal, so you can feel confident that you can’t go wrong with your choice, whatever the child’s reading age."
