Looking for non-toy gift ideas for children on your holiday shopping list? I know that our girls are “toyed out” — if that’s a term. Basically, we have more toys than they even know what to do with. Therefore, books are an excellent gift idea for them! After all, their mom — ahem — is a big reader and a huge proponent for the written word in our house. Therefore, I was thrilled to partner with National Geographic Kids for the holiday season.
