Jessie Willcox Smith, “The New Book” 1915
What do most kids age 6-17 want to find in the books they read? Do they want to laugh, explore places they’ve never been, or simply be made to think and feel new things? A little of everything, as it turns out. Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, has created a printable, mobile-friendly 2017 holiday gift guide based on top children’s titles and matching them with the kinds of things kids look for themselves when choosing something to read. Research on these most sought-after characteristics, as well as a plethora of other fascinating information, was carried out by Scholastic and put into their Kids & Family Reading Report™. Check out the facts and figures, and download the link to the publishing giant’s research-based holiday gift books here.
The holidays are a perfect time to create or add to your family library. Enjoy!
