Book Gift: THE PAGES BETWEEN US « Ginger Rue Books


The Book Aunt strikes again!

For my niece’s 10th birthday, I got her a copy of Lindsey Leavitt and Robin Mellom‘s The Pages Between Us. But of course, that’s not all she got!

leavitt-giftleavitt-gift-2A simple trip to a big super store made it easy to pick up lots of items to help the book come alive: snickerdoodles (you’d be surprised how hard it was to find a cookie with this actual name on the box, but the cinnamon Chips Ahoy! package was close enough), pickle chips (my niece had never had these before so I didn’t know if she will like them…but we’ll soon find out!), sea salt chips (I couldn’t find hummus and sea salt flavor, unfortunately–if only I’d had a chance to hit Fresh Market before the big day!), super cute pencils, and a few other items, including…(drumroll, please)…

Now my niece and a friend can have their very own version of the book’s adventure in friendship.

She even loved the inexpensive hot pink plastic basket in which all her goodies were nestled away. I think it was fun for my niece to get a basketful of neat snacks and special items. And it will be even more fun when she reads her new book and can, say, try pickle chips, just like the girls in the story.

I love the book-and-related-items-tie-in for gifts. It makes shopping more of an adventure and less of a chore. I can’t wait to get Lindsey’s Commander in Cheese series for my younger nieces and nephews. However, I may stop short of buying them a mouse to go with their books. My sisters-in-law have their limits!
