“The Monster At the End of the Book” Sesame Street’s Grover is a wonderful book and kids love it.

My favorite (and the one I give at all baby showers) is “The Poky Little Puppy” (one of The Golden Books). I loved it when I was little and everyone I’ve given it to has said it was one of their favorites too.

I may also add the “Go the F*** to Sleep” book to my gift list as well (it looks amazing for parents!).

Aww, I had “The Pokey Little Puppy,” too.  As far as newer books go, I like “The Belly Button Book.”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar (totally recommend based on bias-my daughter loved it from month 1. Simple pictures on White Background and good patterning for reading.)

Dear Zoo  (simple, kids like to flip..i think this will be a favorite by 1 year old)

This Little Chick (good rhythm and  animal noises)

On the Night You Were Born (very soothing, loving)

Hooray for Fish (I just like it b/c it has fish and the language is playful. Emi doesn’t care for it. Maybe it’s for mature audiences only. )

Last baby shower I went to I gave “The book of Hugs”  Thankfully it was updated… the one I have invokes images of 70’s porn.

All of my nieces and nephews have LOVED “Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see?” They can memorize the book easily since the picture shows what brown bear “sees” next.

Another great book… “Mama Mama Misses Llama.” It is for 2-3 year olds, but it is always nice to get books that they will like in the future.
