Gift 2017 Catalog


Welcome to our gift catalog, for which we've chosen books, music, and so much more with your shopping list in mind! For the bibliophiles in your life, we recommend American Libraries 1730–1950 and My Miniature Library, while your animal-loving friends and family members will rave about The Dogist Puppies and Crafting with Cat Hair. Children will enjoy stepping into The World of Eric Carle with a pair of activity sets, while history buffs will be enthralled by the illustrated series, including The Seventy Great Inventions of the Ancient World. The Wailin' Jennys are celebrating 15 years together; their new CD is worth cheering about, and they also appear on our favorite Christmas CD this year, Christmas on the Lam and Other Songs from the Season, a seasonal compilation brought to us longtime fans by Red House Records. We hope that you're enjoying the season and thank you for your orders!
