I'm trying to choose books for each of my kids for Christmas. We have a LOT of book so it's kinds of hard.
I have chosen for two of them, one teen and one primary age. I need four more ideas, one teen, one primary, one preschooler and one toddler.
Something new and really good would be great.

Not new but I've been making list of recommended books for a while (on EB, award lists etc)
Not so educational but I'll be buying this for my niece for Christmas,
One Red Dot. Or maybe one of the sequels
I also have these on my list for older primary: The Phantom Tollbooth or something by Diana Wynne Jones
Something by Bill Peet or Allan Ahlberg
Dr Seuss's ABC, Where to Sleep, Me... Jane, The Lion and the Mouse, Love You Forever

Graeme Base' Little Elephants looks good.
Also like the Lonely Planet's Not For Parents Travel Book which is good for preteens, or even reluctant teen readers. I bought it for a 10 year old's birthday.
Also ordered National Geographics 2012 Almanac for my 7 year old from Amazon, not sure where you'd get it here though.
For fantasy lovers, Emily Rodda's latest trilogy is great - The last one just released, so very current. The Golden Door, The Silver Door and The Third Door. I loved them too, so suitable from preteen to teenager.
