Broadway Books kicked off its 24 Days of Books today, and they’re going to let us tag along! Each day until Christmas we’ll share their staff picks for great holiday gifts.
Their Day 1 pick is Safari, a scanimation book (remember Gallop! and Swing!?) of eight African animals, with Carol Kaufmann’s text and Dan Kainen’s photography and illustrations (and the technology behind the book). “The book, published by Workman Publishing, is only $24.95 and has been flying off our shelves, as it makes a wonderful gift for people across the spectrum of reading levels and interests,” says co-owner Sally McPherson. “It is a remarkable book that must be seen to be appreciated—you’ll find it right on our front counter. Books like this have a tendency to run out of stock near the end of the holiday season, so don’t put off buying it if it seems like the right gift for someone(s) in your life.” Read more here and buy Safari at Broadway or your local indie!
