How To Get The Best Education Possible: Tip #65

If you are trying to think of a gift to buy for your child for a birthday or the holiday season, consider making the gift a good book at at least one of the gifts.  That brings us to tip #65.

Tip #65: Give your child a book as a gift whenever possible.

Research shows that children who read for pleasure do better academically then children who do little or no reading at home. Find out what the child is interested in or likes to read and buy that book.  According to Great Schools staff, below are some of the best new kids books available:
