All the grandparents want to know what Annalyn and Adrienne need for Christmas. And I am no help. What do they need? Truly? NOTHING. What do they want? I don’t know. Nothing. Everything. Whatever’s in front of them for the moment.

And books. They definitely want books. I’m not sure I can honestly say they NEED books, considering our already-overflowing bookshelves and never-paid-off-for-long library fines. But they both love books. So that’s basically all I’m asking our Santas to give them.

Annalyn and I are reading the first book in the Sisters Grimm series together right now. And Adrienne has fallen in love with our favorite picture book (“DUCK BOOK!” as she calls it, or “Ducks Don’t Wear Socks,” as the book is actually called). Annalyn asks if we can visit the library nearly every day when I pick her up at school. And Adrienne will barely let go of her new “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” book, even to go to bed.

Yep. We are big book nerds around here. And in case you have some little book nerds on your Christmas lists, too, here are a few posts I’ve written with children’s book recommendations!

25 Christmas Books
Our Top 10 Favorite Children’s Books
17 Princess Picture Books for Preschoolers
Children’s Books About Being Yourself
10 Books About Safety for Children
15+ Princess Books for Smart, Strong Girls
16 Children’s Books About the Library

If you’re in the market for kids books, that should get you started. Of course, amazing new books are being written all the time. THERE’S NEVER ENOUGH TIME FOR ALL THE BOOKS! (I’m dying to read these books by Brad Meltzer with Annalyn, for example.)

Are you giving anyone a book for Christmas this year?

Giving kids books for Christmas works for me!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.
