Book and Toy That Fit Together Perfectly

It’s so much fun to expand on books, especially books that are read again and again.

All of the books on this list are ones that we consider must-haves. They either had (or still have) a place in our home library or were checked out from our actual library many times.

I love a practical gift guide, and this one is no different. These would also be great on the gifts for siblings to share list!

Book and toy combinations. What a fun gift idea!
