Tuesday's Top 10: Children's Books and Family Movies

The holidays are fast approaching, and most of us have children to buy gifts for (whether they're our own or not). I don't know about you, but I've always thought that books make awesome gifts...and they come in all price ranges, so they fit any budget.

  1. My son loves the Wimpy Kid series. I'm not surprised to see it listed as #1. Regarding the movies, I do like the Toy Story series, but one of my favorites, that's not on the list is Finding Nemo. ☺
