Picture Books to Give and Get

Doing any Christmas shopping for the small people in your life? Buy books! Toys break, take up space, and are outgrown – but building a child’s library is an investment that lasts. What follows is a list of some (and only some!) of the books we think every child should have in his or her permanent library. Want to make it an extra special gift? Include some of these dear bookplates from SarahJane Studios!

Happy browsing!

WORDLESS BOOKS
Sometimes you don’t need words to tell a fantastic story!

BOOKS ABOUT SPECIAL FRIENDS
These are some of our favorite books about friends and companions.

BOOKS ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR READING ALOUD

Everything on this list is good for reading aloud, but these books are especially delightful when heard. I have yet to get tired of reading any of them to my kids!

FAIRY AND FOLK TALES

BOOKS THAT TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILDHOOD

POETRY

FRACTURED FAIRY TALES, OR, BOOKS THAT MAKE GROWNUPS SMILE TOO
I love these books. They’re a little over my four-year-old’s head, but they’re smart and funny and fun to read. And really – I much prefer these versions of Cinderella!
