Books for Christmas Presents

Or What My Kids are Getting for Christmas, 2011 Edition.

 So I did this last year and decided to do it again this year since my kids, not surprisingly, get quite a few books for Christmas each year.

For the Little One (age 3):

You can find my thoughts on Apple Pie ABC and Press Here and also Follow Me and A Pocketful of Posies (from below) at this post.
We are in a Book and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! are fairly self explanatory. If you are the parent of a young child and don't know Mo Willems (I recently discovered there are such parents) you need to get to know his books and know them well.
Super Dragon is a cute story about a young dragon who wants to compete in a flying contest but needs to learn to fly first.
For Bit (age 7):

Cake Mix Cooking for Kids is a book full of easy recipes that use cake mixes as a base. Great for budding bakers who want to strike out on their own.
You can read my thoughts on Tuesdays at the Castle here and The Cheshire Cheese Cat here.
Bit and I both read Amelia Lost when we checked it out from the library earlier this year. Bit really loved it and so is getting her own copy.

And this year I have a soon to be niece to by a book for too. She is not due to make her arrival into the world until March 1 but it is never to soon to start buying a kid books. Right? And every kid needs a good nursery rhyme collection so she will be getting this:
What are you all getting for the young people in your lives this year?

Hah! We're getting Press Here for one of our boys and my mom-in-law is getting them two Elephant and Piggie books. I really thought about getting someone Amanda and her Alligator, too. I thought long and hard about Apple Pie ABC, but Cars Galore won out. I have a die hard Anna Hibiscus fan and am feeling VERY Guilty that it will be Annie and Snowball books under that tree... but she can read those all by her little self which will be a treat :-)
