For those last-minute shoppers out there, give the gift of reading this year. A book is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Shadow Mountain Publishing has created a book gift guide sure to satisfy every member of your family.
For Mom: The cookbook Live Life Deliciously With Tara Teaspoon has more than 120 delicious show-stopping recipes that are designed to impress. As a former food editor and stylist with Martha Stewart and food director of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine, Tara knows how to create and showcase gorgeously themed meals for every lifestyle and occasion. Regardless if Mom is or isn’t the family cook, she’ll love escaping in a like Miracle Creek Christmas.
For Dad: Instead of a membership to the ‘Jelly Bean of the Month Club’, Dad needs a little more Christmas spirit to help him forget work, and there’s no better way that with this adapation of a classic, Christmas Day in the Morning: Awakening the Joy of Christmas, but be sure to couple with this book that will capture his attention for hours, Catastrophes and Heroes: True Stories of Man-made Disasters , which explores the rich history of the marvels of engineering and technological advances in the span of a century and reveals how the perils, though disastrous, gave rise to heroism and compassion at a time when machines were supposed to do it all.
For the boys: Rather than something that will shoot their eye out, a book can also safely entertain a boy for hours. Send them on an adventure of dragons vs. giants in the Dragonwatch series, the sequel series to Fablehaven by New York Times best-selling author Brandon Mull. Or if they’re a little younger, this sweet Christmas story will put smiles on their faces while teaching a valuable lesson: Ming’s Christmas Wishes.
For the girls: Whether you’re 13 or 30, there’s a book to delight the girls in your life. Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts is a steampunk retelling of Cinderella.
The above titles are available for two-day prime shipping on Amazon, or at your local Barnes & Noble. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from Shadow Mountain Publishing!
