We received your Baby’s First Library Gift Basket when our daughter was born and it was my favourite gift. It was so beautifully presented and the books themselves are just gorgeous. A great idea for a gift!

Your gift baskets are now my go-to gift when someone has a baby. The books in the Baby’s First Library Gift Basket are the books my wife and I loved reading to our kids when they were small. Brings back all the memories. Great choices!


Reading is so important and such a joy and I’m all for starting to read aloud as early as possible. Your gift baskets are just beautiful and are always received with lots of wows! I’ve just ordered my fourth, this time for a new little one-year-old.


Our Fabulous Four Gift Basket for 4-Year-Olds is the perfect birthday, Christmas or just-because gift for a 4-year-old boy or girl.

Each of the books in our Fabulous Four Gift Basket for 4-Year-Olds has been carefully chosen to appeal to children who are just turning four and on their way to becoming fantastic five-year-olds. At this age, children are becoming interested in longer stories with a clear plot, enjoy reading books on their own and are beginning to point out familiar letters and words. They still love the beautiful rhythms and bouncy rhymes which make these books for 4-year-olds fun to read aloud and are important for stimulating a love of language and and awareness of how language works.

The books in our Fabulous Four Gift Basket for 4-Year-Olds are mostly board books so they're great - and easy - for 4-year-olds to handle themselves. This is an important part of helping children develop a love of books and reading. Our signature gift basket is a great place to store the books so your favourite 4-year-old can dip into them whenever they like.

Our Fabulous Four Gift Basket for 4-Year-Olds contains the following selection of the very best books for 4-year-olds:

  • The Tale of Peter Rabbit: the classic story of a mischievous rabbit who disobeys his mother;
  • Rhyme Cordial: unexpected rhymes, clever wordplay and bold, bright illustrations create lots of fun in this clever fold-out book;
  • A is for All the Things You Are: a joyful alphabet book celebrating the things that make us unique as individuals and connect us as humans;
  • Each Peach Pear Plum: children search for familiar nursery rhyme characters hidden in the pages of this delightful rhyming book;
  • Schnitzel von Krumm Forget-Me-Not: guess who gets underfoot while his family is packing for their holiday and is accidentally left behind?

A super-soft Jellycat Bashful Bunny is great for little hands to hold while listening to the story.

Our signature gift basket is beautiful and sturdy and a great place to store the books so that they can be kept tidy and close at hand.


Our beautiful baskets are made especially for The Book Basket Company to our specifications and are sturdy enough to stand up to a bit of less-than-gentle handling from little ones. The cute liners are sewn for us in Canberra by a lovely lady who operates her small business from home.

Care Guide

Your Gift Basket for 4-Year-olds is designed to stand up to normal wear-and-tear and to handling by young children. If cleaning is needed, here’s what we suggest:

Basket: wipe gently with a damp cloth.
 wash gently in cold water, if needed. Line dry. Do not tumble dry as the cotton will shrink.
Jellycat Bashful Stardust Bunny:
 spot clean with a damp cloth to remove any marks. Can be hand-washed.

 board books are designed to be handled by babies and small children and we encourage this as it’s an important part of how little ones get to know and love books. Yes, the books are likely to become a bit worn but we think that’s OK. We suggest being a bit careful with Possum Magic and The Tale of Peter Rabbit as these two are not board books. These suggest keeping these two out of reach of any under-2s in the house.


Our gift baskets are shrink-wrapped to prevent the books moving around in transit. Each gift basket is protected by a layer of biodegradable, eco-friendly fill inside its shipping box.

Approximate measurements:

Basket (empty): 23cm x 23cm x 14cm (height)

Basket boxed for delivery: 30cm x 30cm x 30cm


We’re sure you and the little bookworm in your life will love their Gift Basket for 4-Year-olds but if for any reason you don’t please don’t worry. You can return your gift basket, no questions asked, and we’ll give you a full refund, including postage.
