As an avid reader and parent, I know how important it is to cultivate and encourage young readers. That’s why every year I give books as gifts to all the kids in my life.


If there’s a young NOOK reader on your gift list this year, you’ll want to explore NOOK Instant Gifting. With NOOK Instant Gifting, you can send NOOK Books via email, and can even schedule them to arrive on Christmas Day.


In case you’re not fully up-to-date on what the kids are reading these days, we’ve put together a list of 101 Instant Gifting Ideas for every type of reader. I’ve selected a few of my favorites below, but please check out the full list of 101 Instant Gifting Ideas for many more recommendations.


Next week we’ll offer a gift guide for the more mature (or at least older :smileyhappy:) readers on your list.
