Last week, I put together a DVD movies gift guide. This week, I decided to put together a list of books that would appeal to many dads, moms, and kids.
If your children love superheroes, then they will also love the three superhero guides below. We purchased the DC Comics and Marvel encyclopedias a couple of years ago and they are getting a little beat up because my seven-year old son looks at them all the time. Plus he treats his books like he treats his baby brother — Rough with a capital R. Recently, my son checked out the Avengers guide at the library and likes it too, but there is a lot of overlap between the Avengers guide and the Marvel Encyclopedia. These three superhero guides feature pictures and interesting facts about superheroes and supervillains. I highly recommend the DC and Marvel encyclopedias. And if you don’t want to shell out the bucks for those two books, I would suggest going with the less expensive Avengers guide.
- The DC Comics Encyclopedia (List Price: $40, Amazon: $28.61)
- Marvel Encyclopedia (List Price: $40, Amazon: $26.40)
- Marvel Avengers: The Ultimate Character Guide (List: $16.99, Amazon: $11.55)
