This blogger says "it" better than I ever could. Leaders are Readers; Readers succeed; and if you want your child to be a leader/reader/successful give them books for the holidays. If you want them to be "gamers" (and no doubt there are careers there -- but they need to read to get through the programming classes) give them games. Now if you want your children to be "players" give them play things. Your choice as always. JMHO.
