Best Gift for a 5-Year Old

I'm convinced that there's no way an adult human can possibly read the same story over and over enough to satisfy the developmental needs of a 5-year old. Fortunately, you don't have to.

Buy a Creative ZEN Stone with Built-in Speaker....then load it with smart, well-written young-adult stories like Igraine the Brave and the Dragons of Blueland.

Mac lovers... don't buy the Shuffle for a 5-year old... it looks similar, but doesn't have speakers. Little kids need speakers

1) so they can use their player on their own.
2) so they can share books with friends

We have a family rule that we have to have read the real book once, in person, before it can go on his stone. It keeps me from getting lazy.
