>> and this year our long time contributor is back with a very generous donation. rachel is here to make the donation along with a little help. good morning, guys.
>> good morning. thanks for having us back this year.
>> great to have you. these are not only great books that are a lot of fun but they're learning books.
>> they are. they're learning books but kids barely know they're learning. they're learning about things like lego and animal and space and they love those subjects and get a lot of education out of them and it lasts well beyond the holidays.
>> star wars titles are huge this year, right?
>> star wars has always been a great seller for us and they're a huge hit and lego is a big deal . we're thrilled that this year we're finding a lot of sales through this book right here the animal book .
