Holiday Gift Ideas from The Scholastic Store for the Little Ones!

One of the toughest things these days is to know which books to buy for the kids – this holiday season I’ve got some help from my friendly little elves at The Scholastic Store – with some top picks!

Clifford Cares by Norman Bridwell – (Ages 0-3; $6.99)
Clifford loves to care. He shows he cares–about his neighbors, his family, and his park–and everyone cares about Clifford! Perfect for the youngest puppy fans, this simple story is done in classic Clifford style and also has a padded cover!
I Am Small by Emma Dodd- (Ages 0-3; $8.99)
From the eyes of a baby penguin the world is a great big place. The sky so high, the ocean so deep, and the mountains so steep–all these things are magnificent from it’s point of view. But in the eyes of it’s mother–this little penguin is the biggest, most important thing in the world! This beautiful story is highlighted with foil on the cover and throughout.
Oh, What a Christmas! by Michael Garland – (Ages 3-8; $16.99)
Join Santa’s wild ride in this soon-to-be Christmas classic! When the harness to Santa’s sleigh breaks mid-flight, Dasher, Dancer, and the rest of the reindeer gang fly off into the night…leaving Santa and all of his presents stranded! Who will guide Santa’s sleigh and save Christmas now?
Chuggington: Chug-Of-War by Scholastic (Ages 3-5; $12.99)
Which team will win? You decide! Nobody wants to go to the mine to do a messy job. There’s only one way to settle it–a chug-of-war! Kids will love using the magnets in this interactive book!  8 magnets PLUS magnetic book and play area!
My Rhinocerous by Jon Agee – (Ages 3-7; $16.95)
If you should ever get a rhinoceros for a pet, you’re in for a surprise. It won’t chase a ball. Or a stick. Or a frisbie. In fact, according to the experts, a rhinoceros does only two things: pop balloons and poke holes in kites. But don’t be discouraged. As you’ll discover in Jon Agee’s hilarious picture book, rhinoceroses can do more–so much more–than that!
Funny Farm by Mark Teague – (Ages 3-7; $16.99)
The cows, pigs, and sheep have been waiting for Cousin Edward to visit Hawthorne Farm. The fun is never ending as Edward tries his best to milk the cows, tend the sheep, feed the pigs, plant the garden, and much more. It is truly a day that Edward will never forget!

Can You See What I See? Toyland Express by Walter Wick – (Ages 5+; $13.99)
Kids will love this amazing new search-and-find adventure from the creative mind of renowned photographer and author Walter Wick – the creator of award-winning picture books, the author and photographer of the New York Times bestselling Can You See What I See? series, and the photographer of the bestselling I Spy series.

Stars Wars storms into The Scholastic Store and Book Giveaway

The Scholastic Store is hosting a Stars Wars event on Saturday, October 23 from 1-5pm. Kids of all ages (and their parents) can hang out with Star Wars Storm Troopers and maybe even a member of the Droid Detachment! There will be classes for young paduwans and a chance to win a copy of the new book, Millennium Falcon.

Scholastic Store has some pretty awesome events coming up and usually they’re free, check the calendar here. While not everyone can make it to the store Saturday for this awesome party – Scholastic is blasting off with a rad giveaway for anyone in the US to win.

I’ve been reading these books (well not Millennium Falcon I’ve put that away since its pretty awesome and sooo not a toddler book, and I really like it myself.) to my kiddo. Its great to connect to something so Daddy – I grew up on Star Wars having an alphabet book that could use the word Droid is pretty cool!


Star Wars: ABC

Star Wars: ABC is an alphabetical adventure through the imaginative and intergalactic world of Star Wars featuring the names and images of the most popular characters, droids, spaceships, and creatures in this galaxy far, far away. Ages 0+, $12.99.


STAR WARS SPACESHIPS

A perfect introduction to the Star Wars universe, this board book features the names and images of the most iconic spaceships coupled with simple text, as the Millennium Falcon, TIE Fighters, and X-Wings blast across outer space. Designed for the young Jedi-in-training, Star Wars: Spaceships will take children to a galaxy far, far away…into an epic story that was a defining moment for many of today’s parents. The Force is strong with this book.  Ages 4+, $7.99.



STAR WARS Millennium Falcon

For older STAR WARS fans, this novelty format dissects the most famous ship in the galaxy section-by-section, revealing the ship’s secrets and special modifications.
