Bookish Gifts for Bookworms

One of the great ways a child can extend their world is through reading. Whilst some children will find this a chore that has to be completed, there will be others who embrace books like long-lost friends and can’t wait to catch up with them. Feeding a child’s thirst for all things books is always going to be a good thing and this can be done via physical books as well as bookish gifts.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
— Dr. Seuss
