What, if any, memorable or special book have you ever gotten as a present? Birthday or otherwise. What made it so notable? The person who gave it? The book itself? The “gift aura?”
As a child I loved Judith Kerr's Mog Series and as a teacher I used them a lot in class. So one of my best book presents was when my boyfriend (now my husband) went to London to get me a signed copy of Goodbye Mog, the last book in the series. If you haven't read it, you should it is beautiful, makes me cry when ever I read it and is excellent for explaining he death of animals to children.
