Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Gift for 9 year old girl

Hi,

 

My daughter will be turning 9 yrs this month. Please suggest some good books for her gift.

She loves reading. I want to buy her something which is very ingormative and full of knowledge. Some useful gift which she can relish over the years.

 

Please help advise.

 

Thanks,

Paresh

Re: Gift for 9 year old girl

So are you looking for something more like a book of history or science/nature?  Or something along the fictional lines?

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

I am looking for something which will help in her studies, she is in 4th grade. She should enjoy as well as learn.

BHAVI--Many times, 4th graders in the U.S. study about their states.  I'd suggest books about that (if you live in the U.S. and this is true for your daughter).  It's also a great time to read books together about the state and then go visit some of the historical/cultural/geographic sites in that state--such fun, and a great summer activity, too!
