We love giving books as gifts, but you really can't tell a book by its cover. When we worked in publishing, we brought home a ton of free children's books, but not all of them turned out to be winners, so we learned to be a little bit more selective.
The Sound of Colors also made it on their list. The story follows a blind girl as she moves through the city. This book really appeals to our poetic sensibility.
