Gift Books for Teens and Tweens

642 Things to Write About: Young Writer’s Edition

More than a book, this is a journal that will keep your tweens busy writing creatively for a long time. “Write  a story that includes a streetlight, a bear and a kid with a jar of honey” is only one of the 642 suggested things to write about in this book.

A Child’s Introduction to Art: The World’s Greatest Paintings and Sculptures

Gift Books for teens and tweens

Tweens, ages 9 to 12, are introduced to the world of art and its most famous artists, styles and periods. Forty artists and masterpieces are highlighted. There is also information on the various styles and art periods, art appreciation, color and tools.

Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey

Gift books for teens tweens

This book is much more than a biography for teens about a popular singer-songwriter. This is a beautiful book, illustrated by Sheeran’s childhood friend and artist, Phillip Butah. The book is filled with amazing photos and artwork, that makes it worth buying for that alone. There are wonderful photos of Sheehan with Taylor Swift, Elton John, the Queen of England and more. At the end of the book, Butah writes about the artistic process. Great gift for teens that are fans of Ed Sheeran, musicians, drawing and photography.

Guys Read: True Stories

The author of the Guys Read line of books, Jon Scieszka, writes books that will interest boys in reading. The newest book for tweens is an anthology of 10 stories by award-winning non-fiction authors. “Guys Read: True Stories is a mind-blowing collection of essays, biographies, travelogues, and more, all proving that the truth is most definitely out there.”

How Star Wars Conquered the Universe

This is probably the most comprehensive book about Star Wars ever written. I would only buy this as a gift for a teen or adult that is a huge Star Wars fan. The reviews were excellent. I am not a big Star Wars fan and I read part of it and found it fascinating.

Petcam: The World Through the Lens of Our Four-Legged Friends

gift books for teens and tweens

This is an adorable book for animal lovers of any age. Pictures were taken from little cameras worn around the necks of a variety of animals. Next to the pictures from each animal is cute prose of what the animal might have been thinking. There is a section in the back of the book on how to take petcam pictures with your pet.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Experience

This is actually a Beautiful Coffee Table book. There is a great deal of information in this book about the animated series, as well as some fun. I’m not sure if they had a clear market it mind when the book was published. That might be why the price has greatly dropped. I think that it would make a perfect gift for teens, who loved the series, and would now appreciate a book like this. If you have kids that are interested in art or design that are tweens, teens or young adults, this would make a great gift for all of them.

Downtown Bookworks 

Last year during holiday season I wrote an entire post about Downtown Bookworks wonderful books for tweens. I highly recommend you click on their website or the link to my post. I actually want to highlight a few new books that they published for young children this year.
