Favorite Books to Give as Gifts?

It's getting to be that time of year when we're asked to suggest books that families can buy as presents. I love giving books as gifts to everyone I know, but there's always a challenge to find the right book for the right person. Developmentally, of course, I can usually choose the right level, but it can be difficult to find a book that will really click with another reader.


Do you have books that you recommend for a specific kind of readers? Are there books that you love to give to children, teens, or adults? Please share some titles and who they're perfect for!





P.S. If you're looking for more suggestions than we can gather in this thread, check out the episodes of the podcasts Chatting About Books: Recommendations for Young Readers and Text Messages: Recommendations for Adolescent Readers.
