With Hanukkah just around the corner (the first week of December) and Christmas coming quickly after that, websites and publications are beginning their lists of children's' books for gift-giving.
The New York Times Book Review printed their list of the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2010 (clickable link) which include some of my personal favorites such as the charming "Henry in Love" by Peter McCarty, as well as some books that I am now excited to see, including "A Sick Day for Amos McGee" by Philip and Erin Stead.
The website Imagination Soup ("playful learning for inquisitive kids") published their Holiday Gift Guide to the Best Books for Kids which includes some non-book items such as the Little Librarian kit if your little one wishes to emulate Ms. Eileen or me!
The ALSC (Association of Library Service for Children) division of the American Library Association has issued it's 2010 Notable Children's Books list as well. It is an exhaustive list including books recommended for children up to age 14. You'll be sure to find some great suggestions there.
