Great Gift & Book Ideas for White Children - a List from the 'Full Haus' Podcasters


Some pals recently inquired about a suggested reading list for their children, especially relevant as summer vacation looms. We realized that after sharing our Christmas 2019 Book & Gift Idea list via Pastebin (https://pastebin.com/MWtKy8tW) we hadn’t posted it to the site. So here it is for all white parents and relatives looking for some quality gifts for their precious progeny. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this: primarily the Birth Panelists and their wives, but also old friends and show fans.

Please note: we do not endorse Amazon, but if you do shop there for convenience, at least use smile.amazon.com so that a portion of every purchase goes to a worthy charity of your choice. If there’s any glaring omissions, drop us a line to fullhausshow@protonmail.com
