There are many gifts you can give a child this holiday season, but in this article, I hope to influence you to give the gift of creativity. The idea came to mind when the collaborators of KidLit Parade discussed what the themes would be for the next two weeks. It was decided holiday traditions (#KLPTraditions) would be appropriate for the season .
The Gift of Reading
When I say that I believe reading is a gift, it is a message that comes from my heart. The joy–and even sorrow–that comes from a book can be a comforting companion. The emotions and thoughts they provoke unrivaled. It is something that I want all children (and adults) to experience. It is why you will always find books underneath our Christmas tree each year.
