It is that time of the year. And if you are amongst the lucky ones who have already put their Christmas list together and are already halfway through it, then the one question that always lingers is: have I chosen the right thing?
Even more so when you’ve decided that a Greek book would be a good idea for a young child that reads Greek, especially when you’re not very familiar what they may like reading. Here’s a handy guide with examples of books in Greek that you cannot go wrong with, when choosing a bookish Christmas present.

As you can probably suss from the above, a Christmas book doesn’t have to be necessarily Christmas themed, since a book is an investment that you want to last through time. However, if you wish to have more personalised recommendations on your Christmas book shopping, do not hesitate to contact us while there’s still time!
