The Greatest Gift

passion for readingSpring is quickly turning into summer, and it seems like we’re back to a season of gift giving. From Teacher Appreciation Week to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, baby showers, and what feels like a birthday party every single week-end, I know that I’m always looking for affordable and meaningful gift ideas .

So I’m going to share my best gift giving secret: Usborne Books and More offers e-gift cards. You choose the amount, include a personal message, and in less time than it takes to read this article, you can share the magic of reading with someone you love.

Pretty cool, right?

Let’s a take a quick look at those present-giving celebrations –

1. Teacher Appreciation Week – There’s almost no one who works harder to be a partner in helping our children develop their full potential than their teachers. And it’s a fact almost all teachers spend their own money on classroom supplies, even in well-funded districts. An Usborne Books and More e-gift card can help a teacher provide some of the extra materials they need for their classrooms – re-usable wipe clean activities that will save them the time and frustration of making photocopies and lessen classroom trash; learning palettes, lift-the-flap books and books full of science experiments to advance hands-on learning. Or maybe just the opportunity to nurture the young readers in their own lives. Teachers give so much of themselves to their students, what better gift can we give than the special power of new books to read together with their own children?

2. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – Books bring people together. The time that we spend reading as a family does so much for strengthening our relationships and making memories. Of course all parents deserve gifts that are “just for them”. But books that provide opportunities for learning together or just keeping little ones occupied so that mom or dad can go to the bathroom ALONE? We see you parents and we know that you’re always on this job. Usborne Books and More e-gift cards are a great way to make parenting that much easier and more meaningful.

3. Baby Showers – The clothes are cute. The diapers are essential. And there is no shortage of incredible “why didn’t I think of that” baby products to overwhelm new parents. Which is why Usborne Books and More e-gift cards are my favorite baby shower gifts. When the clothes are outgrown and diapers are no longer necessary, the books will still be there. It’s never too early to start reading with children, and reading is a quiet activity that is incredible for building a bond with your baby. From language development to extra snuggle time, books are an essential part of an infant’s growth. And since the e-gift card let’s the parents choose, they can find the book that best fits their family.

4. Birthday Parties – No glitter, no slime, no millions of small pieces to choke or step on, no screeching noises. Just portable, independent, quiet fun. Usborne Books and More has the books that kids love to read. It’s a gift for birthday children and their families.
