Give Great Books to Kids on Your Holiday List
The holiday season is gift-giving time for many families with young children. While we often spend a lot of effort deciding which toy a special child might enjoy, books are also a wonderful gift for that child! But with all the choices available to us, many of us are uncertain about which books are most appropriate.

For example, give babies a book they can sink their teeth into! For more simple guidelines and a fabulous booklist, read on.

Based on kindergarten assessments, we know Alaska children need a little boost to be ready for school. Alaska parents with a child under 5 years of age can help!
Take a short survey, help us improve our work, and have a chance to win a $50 gift card when you submit your survey by December 8, 2017. Take the survey today!

Best Beginnings is a public-private partnership that mobilizes people and resources to ensure all Alaska children begin school ready to succeed.
