Fight for truth and justice, my fellow readers. Here's one way you can do that: Buy a book for a child for Christmas this year.
A classic picture book, like How the Grinch Stole Christmas or an Elephant & Piggie book
A new picture book, like The Night Gardener or We Found a Hat
Mother Goose, like Rosemary Wells' My Very First Mother Goose
Pop-up book, like The Christmas Story by Robert Sabuda
An early chapter book series...Magic Tree House, Scholastic Branches books like Boris and Missy
A classic chapter book
A nonfiction book
A child's cookbook
A drawing book or a craft book for children
You know what...let's do more...I challenge you to buy a book for everyone at Christmas. Face it...this world needs a little more literacy. Here are a few (very random books) I have loved:
Letters of Note
Books about France
Maira Kalman book
A book about books
An action-packed read
Do it. For America.
Other great lists:

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
