Book Pairings

Happy holidays! It has been a great year of reading and there is nothing that makes me happier than giving a book as a gift, especially a book that I have loved and can’t wait to share. Finding a book that will spark the imagination of a child in my life is a worthy goal I set for myself each year, especially for reluctant readers.

One idea for getting kids to reach for a book instead of an electronic device during their winter break is to pair that book with something that enhances its appeal. How many times have you wrapped the perfect book, only to have your child pick up the package, size it up and then toss it aside while muttering “book.” Pair another item with that book to keep them intrigued and remember that one size does not fit all when it comes to book pairings.
