Your Kid’s Next Read #Bookstive list for readers 0-3

Posted on December 1, 2022

Every year I ask the Your Kid’s Next Read Facebook community to share the ONE book they’re buying this festive season in different age groups, so I can pull them together in one handy book list.

This year, we’re calling them the Your Kid’s Next Read #Bookstive lists and this one is the list of gift books for 0-3 year olds.

It’s a collection of recommendations from the group as well as from team members Megan Daley, Allison Rushby and me. Click the title of the book to read more about it, and to purchase*.

Hope it helps!
