I love buying books as gifts for children, whether my own or someone else’s children. They make such fantastic presents for just about any occasion: birth, birthdays, milestones, christenings, and just because. The only difficulty is choosing the right book – after all, there’s so much choice out there that it should be easy, but anyone who has experience with kids will know that some books are hits with every child who picks them up, while others will be left gathering dust on the shelf.
The great news is that now we have Beanstalk Books – www.beanstalkbooks.com.au – a specialist online bookstore for books aimed squarely at babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Started by a mum of three little kids who had trouble finding high quality, age appropriate books, the store is well laid out with books grouped into categories to make choosing easier. Whether you go by the age ranges or the categories (activity books, flashcards and games, lift the flap books, fairy tales and stories, noisy books, cloth buggy and bath books, touchy feely books, and treasuries – what a list!) you’ll find it easy to choose the perfect book for your lucky little recipient. They’re also very affordable, with prices ranging from $9.95 up to $35.00.
