Musing Mondays (31 August)

Today’s Musing Mondays is rather appropriate considering my Friday post, I think. “Do you buy books as gifts for children – either your own or those of friends or family? Would you buy books for all children, or only children who are already practiced readers?”

Books are the only things I buy my youngest brother for present-giving days. My parents indulge him with collectible card games and video games and such; I give him paper. 🙂 He used to be a little miffed when he opened up a book from me, but now he lets me know what books he wants in advance! He actually told me over the weekend (his birthday’s not until practically December!) that he wants “learning books and A-Z Mysteries”, so we’ll see what he ends up with. My beloved Jo-Beth has its kids bargain book blowout coming up, and there’s always good stuff to be had there!

I don’t currently have any other kid-types to buy things for, but when I imagine tiny people and the gifts I would buy them, I definitely see books headed their way.

    I think the greatest gift that you can give a person is a love of reading, and giving a child a book of their very own, hopefully about a subject that interests them, is a great way to start.
    You are lucky your brother is starting to show an interest!
