Books for a Baby Shower

Looking for a nice gift for a baby shower? Start the little one off right with the gift of a book. (Better yet, encourage the parents to get a library card. If they aren't Springfield residents, perhaps your gift can include a prepaid library card.)

Here are a few suggestions from The Horn Book magazine:

Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang
My Car by Byron Barton
I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont
Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton
Hurry! Hurry! by Eve Bunting
Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews
Color Zoo by Lois Ehlert
Barnyard Banter by Denise Fleming
Global Babies by The Global Fund for Children
Old Bear by Kevin Henkes
Over in the Meadow by John Langstaff
Here Comes Mother Goose by Iona Opie
Clap Hands by Helen Oxenbury
