Board Books

fotorcreatedIn the pediatrics research department at MD Anderson, we occasionally have toy drives, etc. for the Children’s Cancer Hospital. I was very excited to find board books on the Christmas wish list for the Child Life Program.

*Cue training montage-style scrolling through Amazon to buy children’s books*


I started by finding a few that went with the Christmas/winter season:

  1. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
  2. The Mitten by Jan Brett
  3. Dream Snow by Eric Carle
  4. Who is Coming to Our House? by Joseph Slate

Amazon quickly figured out what I was doing and started offering helpful recommendations. Before I knew it, I had twelve items in my cart. Although I could have kept going, I decided to stick with a nice round dozen and resolved to save the left out favorites for next Christmas (please don’t hold it against me, Corduroy).

I highly recommend that every college student finds an organization he/she can donate board books to during exams if only because reading these childhood treasures makes for the ultimate de-stressing study break.
