Give Them the Gift Of Reading
One great birthday gift idea is a collection of age-appropriate children's books. You can find them for pennies at garage sales, thrift stores or second hand book stores. Don't have time to spend shopping garage sales? Then do your birthday gift shopping online at Abebooks.com.
Record yourself reading the books. Transfer to CD or the cloud. Encourage your child to read along while listening to your recording. You can also take your child to the library and sign them up for their own library card. You've just given them the keys to the kingdom of imagination.
