The baby shower invitation comes.
The happy parents-to-be have got basics covered.
I want to give a book.
But not a book that someone else is also going to give them.
So, I skip past most of the supermodels of infant books (The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney, Where's Spot by Eric Hill).
Instead, I go for one of these overlooked beauties.
Happy Birthday to babies and parents everywhere! These are all tried-and-true (meaning it's bearable to read each one more than three times in a row).
What are some of your favorite books to give at baby showers?
