Daily Doodle Calendar

Kick off 2012 with a brand-spanking new calendar, and inspire kids to get creative while they get organized. The calendar, from illustrator Taro Gomi, encourages doodling, sketching, and artistic goofing-off with playful prompts for every day of the year. If you’ve ever struggled to get your child to write down her assignments, this is the perfect gift. (Chronicle Books, $10.39)
