Have you bought gifts for your young princes and princesses? If you have not do it yet, then we have some great ideas.

As a rule, when choosing gifts for children, parents most often go to toy stores and find something there. What to do if your child has all the toys he dreamed about? What gift can be not only interesting but also useful? We have a great idea: you can give your child a book.

A book can become a good gift for your kids, and for the kids of your friends or relatives, if you are going to spend holidays with them.

A book can be a great motivator for children and will be able to answer many of their questions. Despite children’s big passion for video games, books are becoming increasingly popular this year.

So, the best book ideas for children of various age:
