What to get the Bookworm?
Books are always a great gift of course, but here are a few more original options for the tiny reader (future author?) in your life.

Product: ABC Learning Blocks (in Eastern Blossoms)
Where to Buy: Etsy
Extras: The set of 26 blocks comes in a hand-sewn drawstring pouch for easy storage.
Why I Love It: Even if I didn't have a baby I'd be coveting these lovely hand-stamped, non-toxic blocks. They are a wonderful way for burgeoning bookworms to learn the alphabet and be on their way to reading. I'm placing my order right now.

Product: Read Between the Bunnies Bookends
Where to Buy: The Land of Nod
Extras: Bunny bookends come in blue, green, orange, and pink. Elephant (gray only) and giraffe (yellow only) bookends are also available.
Why I Love It: No bunnies (or other animals) were harmed in the making of these faux leather bookends, which are a charming way to keep books from tumbling off shelves (until your baby starts pulling them off, of course). I bought a set in orange for one of the babies in our playgroup.

Why I Love It: These two classic books were cherished by my three nieces and I ordered the set for my daughter for Christmas. We read books every night before bed and often during the day too.
