I believe the best baby gift is books! No batteries needed, no sounds or music, and if you read one book per day to a child; they will have heard 1,825 books by their 5th birthday! Here are my recommended books for baby showers and 1st birthday gifts! Help build a personal library for the child you love!
I’m sure I’ve read Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb 1,945 times. It was my first children’s book that I fell in love with after having a baby and I love giving this book as a gift!
If I’m not reading Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb, Then I’m probably reading (well, actually singing!) Do Your Ears Hang Low? We love this book!
May I Please Have a Cookie? is a great book to learn manners!
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Many parents agree it is a must have for toddlers!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a favorite among kids.
Sheep in a Jeep is a fun rhyming book that toddlers love to hear over and over!
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is an adventurous book geared for 2-5 year olds, but I’d not hesitate buying it earlier!
