Included in the collection are classic fairytales and rhyme books as well as a bunch of new books that are focused on STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art, and math), which are important things for children to be learning right now. Books and games are such great gifts to give because they are meant to be shared. Children and adults, cozily reading together or playing with puppets and boardgames just speaks of quality time.
