For a young bibliophile, few things are more exciting than opening the cover of a brand-new book. Book lovers enjoy getting books as gifts, and book sets are a little more fun than simply receiving stand-alone books. Whether the books inside are part of a series or simply stories by one fabulous writer, sets make fabulous gifts for young, avid readers. Pick from popular children's book sets based on a child's age and interests.
