It isn’t always easy buying books for kids, especially if you don’t have kids in that age group yourself. Reading the cover of a book doesn’t always give a good indication of the appropriate age group – and I know I don’t always have time to read a book before I let my kids read it let alone for every kids I buy gifts for at Christmas.
I was very impressed by a Dymocks catalogue not long ago as they did list the age for books aimed at kids.
For anybody else after age appropriate ideas, I found an Australian site listing some good books at a couple of ages – and asking for more people to add to their list so it may be bigger by now with luck.
Books are such a great gift but only if it meets the requirements of the reader. Do you give many books as gifts?
