There’s something about the holidays—that warm glow from the fire, the fact that you actually get to spend time with your kids (or your friends’ and family’s kids)—that makes it the perfect time to curl up with the little ones in your life and read them a storybook. Reading a totally new, beautiful, amazing book with a child is a treasured holiday experience. And if you choose the right book, every time the child reads it alone in the future will bring back the memory of that time you shared.
I’ve written guest posts for Blurb.com before, in fact multiple times. Generally when given a prewritten chunk of text, I choose to write my own post so that it differs substantially from other bloggers. But you know what, I’m just not in the mood right now. So there you have it. I’ll just use the prewritten text. Check out these awesome Blurb books! They would make a fantastic Christmas gift, and if you order now you’ll still get it by the 25th.
If you’re a little tired of the standard children’s book selections in your local brick and mortar store, Blurb has a really incredible assortment of self-published children’s books that you won’t find anywhere else this holiday season.
