Celebrating a Little Book Lover

I’m going to a birthday party this afternoon. We’ll be celebrating my great-nephew’s second birthday. I’ll continue the tradition started last year- his gift is a book and a card with just a little green to tuck into his college savings. It’s exciting this year because of the picture my niece recently sent out showing what a book lover he is. Sitting there surrounded by toys, he is focused on a book.

His book this birthday is A Ball for Daisy by Chris Raschka, a wordless story. Perfect for a book-loving boy who also loves his dog!

    One of my favorite things to do is take my grandchildren to the local indie bookstore and let them choose a book. They go crazy in there! I love wordless books for all ages… Enjoy the birthday, beautiful pictures!

    Wonderful gift tradition. Book makes the best gift in my mind and college fund is a mighty investment for the future.

    I love seeing pictures like these! Aunties always give the best presents for sure. Books and money…doesn’t get any better!!!

  6. I always give books to my niece and nephew, too….long after the new toys are put away, they are still reaching for those books! I’ve never seen that wordless book–I need to track it down! Sweet picture!
