Gift Suggestions...

Books make the best gifts! They always fit, they are always the right color, they are easy to wrap, and they have lasting value. One trip to the bookstore could finish off your entire list! Here are some recent suggestions... and I will add more as I discover them.

100 Notable Books of the Year, from the New York Times
Great Holiday Gifts for Parents and Teachers Gift Ideas covers many topics, including this one for the holidays.

UPDATE: Not necessarily gift suggestions, but listings of the "best" for children:
Horn Book announces FanFare, their picks for best books of the year;
Kirkus Reviews announces Best Children's Books of 2006;
Nominees are up for the CYBILS, the Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards;
It might be interesting (okay, only mildly and only to me) to compare the titles, find the similarities, and see if they turn up on the short list for Newbery and Caldecott recognition.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: It's getting late for gift suggestions, but here are a few more last minute tips:
Best Science Books Ever and many more, from Chicken Spaghetti;
NPR lists best gift books for children.
