When it comes to finding the perfect gift, there’s nothing quite like a book. Kiddos gain inspiration and concentration skills, and parents don’t have more plastic parts to add to the growing pile. We’ve read through hundreds of 2017 releases in kid’s books this year and narrowed it down, somehow, to following picks. From epic find-and-seek adventures to books that empower all kids, we promise there’s at least one book for every kind of kiddo on your list. Click through the gallery below to read all about ’em.
