Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post from Just One More Page is about books for children…

Do you buy books as gifts for children – either your own or those of friends or family? Would you buy books for all children, or only children who are already practiced readers?

I buy books for my daughter all the time not really as gifts but just because I love reading and I want to try and instill that love in her as well.  She’s only two so I don’t know yet whether she will be a book lover or not.  As for my friends I haven’t really bought books for their kids as gifts.  For my daughter’s birthday I did buy books for her day care class instead of a goodie bag.

    I love the idea of buying books for your daughter’s class, Debbie! Gr8 idea 4 when I am blessed w/ children.

    I do not have children and neither do most of my friends. However, I wish I’d gotten more books for my nephews when they were younger, as neither likes to read now.

    I think if a parent is a book lover, and most importantly, there are books around the house, there is a very good chance the child will grow up to love books.
    and that is a great thing.
