  1. This is lame, but I wrapped them all up a month ago and no longer remember which books I’m giving. Except for ‘Unbroken,’ which I’m giving to my father.

    That’s the same as my childhood copy of Caddie W, too.

  2. Hmm. Let’s see. N1 is getting The Friendship Doll – I read it on your recc’d and love it so am passing it on. N2 is getting the new Seuss book (The Bippolo and other lost tales … I think that’s the title) as she is all about Seuss now. B is getting a new Jan Brett version of Beauty and the Beast that I spotted on Amazon. Actually, Amazon recomended it to me based on previous purchases and I agreed. : ) The boy is getting Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site.

    And of course, my Amazon wish lists had several other additions to it while I shopped for these! 🙂

  3. “Blue Hat, Green Hat” is our favorite Boynton book! Get ready for some giggles.
    I bought myself Laurel Long’s “The Twelve Days of Christmas” at our school book fair. The illustrations are amazing and yes, it is an elaborate I-spy (the answers are found on the back of the book jacket.)
    My children are receiving books that go along with their gifts:
    daughter (6) = nesting dolls:
    “The Magic Nesting Doll” by Jacqueline K. Ogburn, illus. by Laurel Long (see a pattern?)
    son (3) = airplane and aircraft carrier:
    “Amazing Airplanes” by Tony Mitton

    My daughter had the pleasure of reading “All the World” with Liz Garton Scanlon during the Sheboygan book festival this fall. Lovely author! We bought a copy of the book and had it personally signed. You can see pictures here, if you missed my post: http://www.brimfulcuriosities.com/2011/10/scenes-from-sheboygan-childrens-book.html

      Janelle,
      Yes, I’m eager to read more of Laurel Long–I haven’t read this Christmas one yet, but I can tell it will be GOOD!

  4. What a fun post! =D

    I’m giving:

    The Help
    Mater Saves Christmas
    a Stephen Lawhead book

    And my mind just went blank. So there you go. I think I’m giving about half a dozen books. Getting to the point of people saying, “Oh, it’s from Carrie. Must be a book.” Now I’m trying for variety. 😉

  5. Love all these choices. I’ve been thinking about putting the Secrets at Sea on hold at the library. Ruth (age 2) affectionately calls Blue Hat, Greet Hat “the oops book”. (If you haven’t read it yet, you’ll understand that after reading it.) Loved All the World.

    I’m giving John “Inheritance” (the last in the Eragon series) which is what he really really wants. I’m giving my Dad a book by John Feinstein and my husband a book about two guys who travel the country searching for typos.

  6. My 16 yr. old son is getting The Adventures of Tintin Volume 6-7, my 12 yr. old daughter is getting the whole Mysterious Benedict Society Series, my 9 yr. old son is getting the first four books in The AIO Imagination Station Series, my 3 yr. old daughter is getting All About Alfie by Shirley Hughes, and my husband is getting Today Matters by John Maxwell.

    I just put the Peck book on hold at the library! I can’t wait to read it.
