First, let me know if you’d like me to put together some more *generic* selections – meaning non-TV books. There are several inexpensive options that are truly wonderful books. We’ve got a mini-library in our house, so I can recommend many good children’s books for you.
Amazon has a really nice widget-type thing that you may not have seen. It looks just like the picture above and it’s a search tool to find all of the eligible Children’s Books for the Buy 3 Books Get One Free deal. This makes their prices extremely competitive with Barnes & Noble. This link and the one above will take you to the main Children’s Books page. Scroll down about halfway and you’ll see the search tool on the right-hand side of the page. One of the first results I received when I used the age range 6-8 and paperback was this Christmas FAVORITE, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for $1.00! You know how I feel about Dickens. In college, I read so many of his works. My very favorite is Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit.
Back on topic – Because my daughter is nothing like my son, it helps to buy her books that correspond to shows she loves. Enter Wubbzy and Max & Ruby. There are several books for $3.99. Using the promotion, the price per book drops to $2.99/book.
$2.99 Book (There is only one…ya know, if you were wondering.)
The Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!: The Wuzzolympics

Amazon Program Information Refresher
Understanding these Amazon programs can be confusing, so I though it might be nice to break them down a bit for you.
Some items are available through the Subscribe & Save program. What that means is that you select shipments at regular intervals (every 1-6 months) and you’ll receive the item at the 15% discounted price. Additionally, all subscriptions ship free. If you don’t want to bother with regular shipments (the prices do fluctuate), sign up to receive the shipment you want and cancel (with no penalty) when you’ve received your order.
Alternatively, all items can be shipped free with Amazon Prime as well. You can sign up for a free trial membership and cancel before you are charged the annual fee, if you choose.
I am a member of the Amazon Mom program and I love it. I get exclusive discounts of 15% on select items (diapers, wipes, etc.) on top of the 15% Subscribe and Save discount, and they often have coupons that I can stack on top of these discounts! Also, with Amazon Mom you have the added bonus of Amazon Prime shipping for the first three months that gets renewed for an additional month (up to one year from sign-up) for every $25 spent in a single order in the Baby Store.
Amazon Student is free for, well, college students by providing a school and major. You get Amazon Prime free shipping for one year. You must have a .edu email address to confirm.Looking for great gift ideas? You can take a look at all of our holiday gift deals here!
