The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Book has come out with a guide book to gift books.  Perfect for the upcoming holiday season, the BCCB highlights over 300 picture books and titles for young, middle, and older children that make wonderful gifts.  For each book entry the following information is provided: the title, author, illustrator, age, current list price, and a brief summary of the book.  This is a wonderful collection of titles to browse through and consider for purchase.  You can download the entire list here.
