When choosing gifts for kids we love, we are always concerned about creating a special memory. Even better when the gift encourages the child to learn in a fun way.
A carefully chosen book as a gift to a child can be kept as a keepsake forever. If the child is in the story, it becomes even more special, and will surely be a memory for a lifetime. That’s why a personalized book is a unique gift, created especially for that child by the person who gives it. But how to choose the best book for each child?
To help you out, we’ve selected indications for each age group. Take a look!

Babies and toddlers often get lots of presents! After all, who doesn’t like to pamper them? Toys and outfits are the most common choices. Books are also a special gift for the little ones, which show affection and can become a memory for a lifetime.
Books for babies?
In the early years of childhood, children are getting to know the world around them. They listen to what people around them say and are learning to make meaning out of the words. And of course, they explore the world with all of their senses: picking objects up, putting it in their mouths, watching everything that happens, and listening to every sound.
Children’s books are great for entertaining little ones, without relying on tablets and other electronics. They are one of the first ways in which children come into contact with art. The illustrations attract a lot of attention and begin to sharpen the children’s aesthetic notion. Listening to stories is also a great incentive to learn to form sentences and start learning how to express themselves.
