A Diary

From Peter Pauper Press
Price: $12.99

When you give your child a diary, you're encouraging her to cultivate her innermost thoughts (not to mention her writing skills, but you don't need to tell her that). Make sure the diary you choose can lock securely and, whatever you do, don't read it! Kids need their privacy, too.
