Holiday Gift-giving: Book Collections and Box Sets

Happy Holiday Shopping Guide! Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, the “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street, is happy to present our 2017 recommendations for gifts this year. If you have any children to buy gifts for who are avid readers, or who love to have many stories read to them, it’s often hard to figure out which one book to get for them. So…

…Why not get them a book that has a number of stories in them? We have several new books that contain collections of stories from one author, or several different authors, many of them classics.

The books by one author include Make Way for McCloskey, a Robert McCloskey Treasury. This contains a number of stories by Robert McCloskey, including his famous MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS, BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL, The Doughnuts from HOMER PRICE, BURT DOW, DEEP-WATER MAN, LENTIL, Ever So Much More So from CENTERBURG TALES, TIME OF WONDER, and ONE MORNING IN MAINE.  We also have Mike Mulligan and More, A Virginia Lee Burton Treasury,  containing stories such as, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, The Little House, Katy and the Big Snow and Maybelle the Cable Car.


If you would prefer some classic picture books all together in one volume, there is the Harper Collins Treasury of Picture Book Classics – A Child’s First Collection. It includes such wonderful stories as Goodnight Moon, Harold and the Purple Crayon, A Baby Sister for Frances, Pete’s a Pizza, and many more. More will be coming.


If your child is a bit older, and likes to read a lot, we also have several boxed sets that they might want to sink their minds into. One series that is loved by most children is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. We have the boxed set, which contains books 1-10.

Collections -Wimpy

Another classic boxed set of books we have available is the Wizard of Oz series. This is a timeless series that can be read over and over, by both parents and children alike. In addition, we have The Dark is Rising Series by Susan Cooper, as well as other boxed sets.


Thank you for making Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester your neighborhood bookstore, and we wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!
