Start the New Year with New Picture Books!

Four years ago I made a decision to give more picture books as gifts.  I have noticed that my nieces and nephews have come to expect and even look forward to receiving a new picture book from me on their birthday and at holidays.

Our family is growing, there are more children that need gifts, and picture books aren't exactly cheap. Unless you buy them when Amazon marks them down as "bargain books". Frequently I look through page after page of books looking for ones that I think would make great gifts.  I realized that sharing the bargains I have uncovered might help others find some picture books they want to give as gifts too.

I became an Amazon.com affiliate because of my efforts on my other blog Happy Birthday Author.  I earn a small commission from the purchases made from Amazon. Therefore posting book deals like these seem to me to be a win-win-win-win situation. I find the books I need for gifts at a great deal. I help you find some deals too. I get a small kick-back on your purchases, and kids are going to get their hands on some great books!

If you are new to Amazon's bargain books you must know that the quantities are limited at these prices.  Once they sell out at this price they may not ever be available at the price again.  Amazon's bargain book price is usually between $6-$8 for full-size brand-new, picture book (which is 60% off). Act fast if you see something you like!

Here is a list of books that I found last night.
