Wrap up a book for a gift that gives more
Reading and books combine to form one of life’s greatest pleasures and one of life’s best avenues for advancement and empowerment.
Giving books gifts much more than simply the words on the page. We may never know just what joy, wisdom or inspiration a reader receives when gifted a book; and, of course, the love of reading is one of the most valuable gifts a parent or teacher can give a child.
Throughout the year, I have been privileged with the opportunity of interviewing many talented authors and illustrators about their picture books. However, these books are but a few of the wonderful picture books that are available for children to read.
Books, books, books
Last December, I presented you with a list of books by authors and illustrators I’d interviewed throughout 2017. In this post, I present a list of books by authors and illustrators I interviewed this year. I hope you will find the list useful when choosing books to gift your young readers. Be sure to read back over last year’s list for additional suggestions.
As with last year’s list, for each author or illustrator I interviewed, I include links to
- the interview on the blog
- the interview in the Author or Illustrator Spotlight
- the creative’s website
- a place where the book may be purchased.

I hope this list has helped you decide on some to add to your own collection or gift for another’s collection this Christmas. Enjoy!
