Great suggestion by PP to get board books for a baby!

I posted before, but I actually just bought a few books today for a baby shower, so I thought I’d update:

– Brown bear what do you see? (Board book)

– Very hungry caterpillar (board book)

– Guess how much I love you (board book)

– Where the wild things are

@Twyla_Smith:  you can never go wrong with Sandra Boynton. My fave is the bellybutton book. I love giving books. They are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Much better than a onsie they grow out of in a week.

Good Morning Muffin Mouse
I remember my mom always reading it to me, and even to this day she’ll still sometimes say “good morning muffin mouse” to me. I will definitely need it for my own collection when we start to have kids!

Rainbow Fish books were great too, I always loved looking for the sparkly scales!

I loved Dr. Seuss–Hop on Pop, Green Eggs and Ham, all the classics 🙂

@Twyla_Smith:  My shower next weekend instructed guests to give a book in lieu of a card.  I’m so excited to see what books my baby gets.  Since cards cost nearly as much as books now, I thought it was a great idea!

I always bring a book to baby showers, and it’s always “Where the Wild Things Are”. It’s my absolute favorite. I read it to my daughter so much she knows it by heart.

@Mars62312:  YES! I second On the Night You Were Born.  I’ve purchased it for a few friends, and they all loved it. Most brought it to the hospital to read to the baby. It’s a great book for a baby shower gift.

@Twyla_Smith:  I love David Shannon’s David series.  I also liked the Pigeon series (i.e. Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog.)

Commenting to follow!  Not just for my own future kids’ nursery, but I also like to give books with other gifts for my nephews. 🙂
