One thought on “Great Kid Lit and Picture Books for Your Holiday Gift List

  1. Hi Alison!

    We have a lot of favorites. Right now one of my twins is into this board book called “The Little Dump Truck,” to the point where there’s a line that says “rattle, rattle clatter” and he does a little jig dance when we read it out loud lol. The older one likes this book called “I Love You Stinky Face.”
