Going to baby shower next week and the invite states to bring a book instead of card, what are good books for babies for baby showers?
Book names would be nice.

Just a thought in the book instead of a card thing . . . While I think it's a little obnoxious to be told what to bring as a gift, many cards these days are $4-$5, sometimes even more. I make cards, but I'd rather give someone an inexpensive book than spend money on something that'll probably get thrown away.
On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman (my absolute favourite)
The Crown on Your Head by Nancy Tillman
Wherever You Go, My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman
I'd Know You Anywhere My Love by Nancy Tillman (not available in board book [at least not before] so a bit more expensive)
DS's favourite is Night, Night Forest Friends by Annie Bach.
I also love Go the F to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. I think he had another one called You Have to Fing Eat. Never bought it because DS eats like a champ.
Does it really matter? No one is forcing you ... Buy a friggen card and make your point- good for you! You will NOT be told what to do! Congrats! Lol - Don't let anyone push you around.
The principle is the point! It is straight out rude to ask for a gift in addition to your original gift. It's the making your guests feel uncomfortable or like they're being shaken down for all of their loose change rather than being appreciative for a thoughtful gift and their presence that should matter.
If you have no problem saying "you know, your original gift isn't enough so remember to bring a book, diapers, and something for the wishing well! K thanks!", I pity you and your friends and family.
*Hey, wait a minute, some of the same ladies commented on my post about how they never return things and love every single Shower gift...and here I was being ridiculed about returning duplicates!*
A wishing well.....? At a shower?! I have never heard of this? Is it a new trend?
