I’ve partnered with Media Masters Publicity to bring you this review and giveaway. All opinions are 100% my own.
Books have been a passion of mine since I was a kid. I love to read and now that I have little ones, I love to read to them. We read a few times during the day and every night at bedtime. The kids always love hearing the story and the love talking about it. Often times they will remember parts of the book and want to “read” pages to me! I love it! My husband and I are always looking for children’s books to add to our collection and when given the opportunity to review a few books recently that would make great gift ideas for children I was more than willing! I was sent three books for review and the kids have been loving them!
Great Gift Ideas for Children
Mina’s White Canvas, by Hyeon-Ju Lee, is a great book that encourages imagination. It’s the story of a young girl named Mina who is tired of her dreary, colorless world so she sets out on a journey with her crayon and canvas. Along her journey she meets many animals who need her help so she uses her crayon and canvas to draw things to help the animals.
We love this book because it teaches the power of imagination and encourages children to be helpful and make the world a better place. If you are looking for some great additions to your gifts for children Mina’s White Canvas would be a great choice!
The next book we reviewed and loved is All the Lost Things by Kelly Canby. I honestly don’t know who enjoyed this book more, our kids or my husband and I. He and I both though it was an incredible book. It’s the story of a little girl whose resilient spirit never gets crushed. All the Lost Things is such a great example of how children make the world a happier place and how they are full of so much hope!
Olive is the main character in this book and she takes a walk one day discovers an underground world full of boxes of the city’s lost things. The lost items include a wide range of things such as dolls, keys, dreams and courage. It’s a very interesting way of looking at how things are lost everyday, including some things that are not material. As Olive is in this underground world she grabs things to help others, like some memory for her grandfather and some hope to spread across the city to bring color and joy back to the city’s residents. It’s a powerful and feel-good message of how even small children can make the world a better place.
The last book we received was No Yeti Yet. This book is another feel-good book about making friends in unexpected places. It’s the story of two brothers on a journey to find a Yeti. the oldest brother answer multiple questions about the monster they are in search of. The twist at the end turns the younger brother into the teacher and find out the Yeti isn’t a scary monster after all but instead becomes their friend.
No Yeti Yet is a heartwarming book about friendship and teaches the valuable lesson of not judging a book by it’s cover. the illustrations are warm and the kids loved looking at every detail. The book was a hit and it read over and over in our home! No Yeti Yet would be a great addition to child’s gift list!
If you are still on the lookout for great gifts for children these books are definitely a hit in our house and would make great gifts! Reading oboks with your children develops their love for reading and just 10 minutes a day can make such a positive impact! Start a new habit of reading, everyone will love it!
