Happy Holiday Shopping Guide! Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, the “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street, is happy to present our 2018 recommendations of gifts for the winter holidays.
If you are searching for a gift for children, this year we have a number of wonderful Boxed sets of books for you to choose from. Our boxed sets for the youngest children are each packaged as one memorable book with a toy for the little ones to play with or cuddle. The Dragons Love Tacos book and Toy by Adam Rubin, Guess How Much I Love You Book and Toy by Anita Jeram, and Owl Babies Book & Toy by Martin Waddell are some of these cute titles.
Then there are the old favorites, the Peter Rabbit Book & Toy by Beatrix Potter, and the Story of Ferdinand Book & Toy by Munro Leaf. Most people know who Peter Rabbit is, but Ferdinand is Ferdinand the Bull, who just wants to smell the flowers, and be peaceful. These boxed sets also come with a book and a toy to cuddle.
If you would like to give only books, but want to give more than one, there are several boxed sets of just books for children that would make great gifts. For example, Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site/Steam Train Dream Train by Sherri Duskey Rinker is very popular, as is the Eric Carle Board Book Set. Baby Loves Science Board Book Set of 4 by Ruth Spiro and Little Critter Bedtime Storybook Set of 5 by Mercer Mayer would also be great choices.
Most children love both Curious George and Pete the Cat, so you probably will not go wrong if you get one of the following boxed sets for the child in your life: Curious George Classic Collection 7 Books by Margret and H.A. Rey; Curious George Around Town 6 Books by Margret and H.A. Rey; Pete The Cat Reading Adventures 5 Books by James Dean and Pete the Cat’s Super Cool Reading Collection by James Dean.
The Complete Elephant & Piggie by Mo Willems is a 25 book boxed set that would be a fantastic addition to any child’s library. It even comes with its’ own bookends! Don’t miss out on this great deal. Don’t forget, most new books are 20% off the cover price, including these boxed sets!
Thank you for making our shelves your destination. We appreciate your business, and wish you a great holiday season!
