When buying books as gifts for kids, you’ll want to make sure they’re age-appropriate. You wouldn’t buy the same book for a preschooler that you would for a baby. If you want to pick up a couple of books as gifts for your loved one, here are some age-appropriate tips you can use to find the perfect titles.
Buying Books for Babies & Toddlers
Board books are perfect for babies and toddlers. Kids that young are hard on books, from throwing them across the room to chewing on the corner of a book. Because of this, you’ll want to find a book that is strong enough to last through the baby and toddler stage. Board books are great for this. Not only are the covers hard, each page is as well, so your baby and toddler will be able to help turn the pages without fear of it tearing. You’ll also want to find books that are colorful and simple. Find books that they can interact with, such as tracing or counting books. These types of books are sure to keep them interested so that they learn a little during story time.

Buying Books for Preschoolers
When buying books for preschoolers, you will want to find books that are colorful and fun. The illustrations in books will be the first thing a preschooler sees, so it should be something that catches their attention. You’ll also want the book to have a fun storyline that your preschooler can follow along with. It should include topics that they know about, such as Valentine’s Day or books on friends.
