Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

For a child's birthday, everyone wants to get the perfect birthday present that will not only be fun, but educational as well. There are few gifts, however, that are perfect for both children and adults. Selecting one of the many children's classic books available is one gift idea that is a perfect choice regardless of the age or gender of the recipient. Children, teenagers and adults of all ages can enjoy some of the most popular classic children's books of all time.

Books like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are incredibly enjoyable as a young child, but even reading or rereading these classics at an older age can reveal new subtleties and viewpoints. Books such as these make a wonderful gift for the younger child in your life. Younger children love it when their parents read to them. A beautifully illustrated version of a children's classic is sure to fascinate even the most restless child and would make an excellent gift.

Every parent knows how important children's books are to their development. It is next to impossible to raise kids today without the help of targeted children's literature. It helps kids’ minds grow and helps them learn how to read. If you have kids and you want to help them learn how to read, then children's classic books are an ideal option for you. A well designed and beautifully illustrated hardcover copy of your child's favorite book will be cherished by your family for years. Not only are the stories great, but each book contains beautiful, detailed pieces of art, illustrating the story and igniting children’s imaginations.

Parents may at first think that their children will not fully appreciate a vividly colored hardcover version of their favorite children's classics, but kids notice the difference when the pictures are beautifully printed on the glossy pages. Additionally, the writing of the actual words in the higher quality versions of these books makes it easier for kids to see and distinguish letters from one another when they are first learning how to read. It may not seem like it at first, but a high quality illustrated version of a children's classic is the perfect way to get your kids hooked on reading for the rest of their lives.

Illustrated books may be slightly pricier than cheaper paperback alternatives, but they are well worth it when you consider how much your children will enjoy them. Teaching your children how to read can be a difficult time, but if your kids truly want to learn how to read so that they can personally enjoy their favorite stories, then it makes the process much easier. Not only will kids love reading these illustrated books when they first receive them as gifts, but they will continue to enjoy revisiting these treasures for the rest of their lives.
