Festive Season Gift Giving
Whether it’s end of term celebrations or other festive occasions, the season of gift giving is upon us – and books are the perfect gift! Megan and Allison look at how to choose books that will actually be read, how to make box sets and bind-ups count, and how to manage extended family gift-giving. Plus, Megan shares tips for keeping kids on track with school reading, and Allison has three videos with tips for young writers.
