Give the Gift of Reading

It’s December! It’s that time of the year when everyone is in the spirit of giving. What kind of gifts are you giving out this year?

One of my favourite things to give as presents are books. I loved reading as a child and now that I have my own children, that love for reading is something that I want to share with them. As a kid, I was taken to so many different places and time by every story that I read. I loved how my imagination could travel in so many different scenarios while reading and even after finishing a book. Not only did I enjoy it, all the travelling by books that I did brought so much knowledge. It literally opened up my thinking and imagination to a world of solutions and great possibilities that I also want my kids to have.

Everybody knows how important reading is. It is a very simple yet valuable gift that lasts a lifetime. That’s why whenever I can, I give books as gifts. And now that I have created a few books of my own, it’s even more special to be able to give something that I was able to create myself because of my love for reading.

If you are looking for new children’s books to give as presents or as stockingfillers this Christmas, do consider my books. I will list them below with a brief description. I also have a few new book ideas that I am working on so please follow my Amazon author page as it is always updated with my latest works.
