Some Great Books For #BookTober And #Holiday2023

We love books. Especially as gifts. Fun books, fiction, non-fiction, crafty, pretty much anything goes! Here is a list of some amazing books from Gibbs Smith!
Recent surveys reveal that more Americans can name at least two members of the Simpsons' cartoon family than can name the first four American presidents in order. Richard Lederer and Caroline McCullagh have written the American Trivia Quiz Book to make your knowledge of our nation's history at least match the nation's knowledge of The Simpsons. The American Trivia Quiz Book brims with fascinating facts about the people, places, and events that make our nation great, with a series of fun and informative quizzes on subjects ranging from Columbus to baseball. There are questions about presidents and first ladies, explorers, inventors, heroes, and poets. Impress (and stump) your friends with your knowledge of all things American. In the process, you'll find our national gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to be even more precious.
Everyone can have fun using Snowflakes: Creative Paper Cutouts for All Seasons, creating one-of-a-kind designs for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and other holidays, plus themes for winter, spring, summer, and fall. The 144 patterns are ideal for scrapbooking, holiday cards, and decorating. You can also use your snowflake patterns as quilt blocks, stencils, crochet patterns, wood ornaments, or patterns for stained glass! Use Snowflakes as a tool to learn the techniques and then begin experimenting on your own. After spending years showing people how to make paper snowflakes and copying hundreds of patterns for them, Cindy Higham decided to put her patterns in a book for everyone to enjoy.
FAMtastic is a memorable book for you and the most important people in your life: your family. It joins Gibbs Smith’s new series, with each book featuring more than 95 fill-in-the-blanks to make your story unique. Perfect for the holidays, these joyful, silly, and thoughtful prompts bring back the memories that make your relationship such a gift. Reminisce with prompts such as: “If we could sum up the past year together in one word each, our words would be __ and __”; “In a zombie apocalypse, ___ would be the first to die”; and “We would all describe our heritage as ___ and ___”.
