Books Make Great Baby Gifts

Looking for a fun idea for a baby shower gift? How about creating a little library for the baby! Fill a basket, bassinet, or cute clothes hamper with your favorite children's books! Not only will you be "showering" the baby with a cute gift you will also be helping him become a better reader when he grows up because research shows access to books in the home is a critical factor in literacy.

Board Books are a great choice for babies because they are sturdy and hard to destroy.
