Reading is sweet! Following this holiday season, I would love to put a moratorium on new toys in my home, but know it would only lead to tons of tears. While my lil ones did receive a few beloved books under the tree, I'm thinking of getting them subscriptions to one of the Lollipop Book Club programs for their birthdays.
More than just a children's book-of-the-month club, Lollipop sends beautifully handcrafted lollipops and personalized notes with each text. Gift-givers select from more than a dozen book packages, such as "Books by Famous People" and "Caldecott Medal Winners," write a personal note that is affixed inside the book and then leave it up to nice people at the club to include an appropriate sucker in the package. Available in three-, six-month and year-long installments, a subscription is a gift that keeps on giving.
