Re: Poem for Bring a Book instead of card?

  • I haven't seen a poem, just something like this:

    "In leu of a greeting card, please bring your favorite children's book to help stock baby ________'s book shelf!" 

  • "Although cards are nice,
    They're only read once or twice.
    A book is a treasure
    That lasts forever.
    So instead of a card to be put aside,
    Please give the baby a book with your name & wishes inside.
    It will be read to our little tyke
    Before bed each night,
    And we will think of you
    Forever and ever!"

  • Here's the one we used (for twins):

    Although cards are nice
    they're read once or
    maybe twice.

    A book is a treasure
    forever and forever.

    So instead of a card
    to be put aside,
    please give the little ones
    a book with
    your best wishes inside.

    It will be read to the babies
    before bed each night
    and Lanie and Shane
    will thank you
    as they turn off the light
    .

     

    Our IF journey: 1 m/c, 1 IVF with only 3 eggs retrieved yielding Dylan and a lost twin, 1 shocker unmedicated BFP resulting in Jace, 3 more unmedicated pregnancies ending in more losses.
    Total score: 6 pregnancies, 5 losses, 2 amazing blessings that I'm thankful for every single day.
  • As (Mother to be's name) due date is coming near,
    We're inviting friends and family dear.
    To choose a favorite story or fairy tale
    That you would like Baby ________ to hear.
    Instead of a card, please let (mother to be's name) look,
    At your special choice of a book,
    and then to Baby __________ she will read
    With all the love a newborn will need.
    So with a personal touch, please choose a book
    And in it then your name do put.
    It need not cost more than a card
    Just pick a favorite, it shouldn't be hard

     

     ***********************

    I want to be a bright child
    As smart as I can be.
    That is why I'm hoping
    My mom will read to me.
    If you plan to bring a card
    Please take another look,
    I would like to learn my ABC's
    From your favorite storybook.
    Please sign your name
    As your personal touch.
    Baby (last name) thanks you
    Beary, beary much.
    Or, replace the last paragraph with the following:
    Please add your name and a note
    Then I'll know you've done your part.
    Some day I'll surely thank you
    From the bottom of my heart.
