Baby Shower Books

What is the best book to bring to a baby shower? Some baby shower hosts ask attendees to bring their favorite books, a great way to build a baby’s first library and help new parents find great books.

Reddit user Kincsem recently had a baby shower and shared her books in the photo album embedded above: “I requested guests’ favorite baby books in lieu of cards for my baby shower last summer. The result was wonderful. My dad and my brother moved the room to tears.”

Martha Stewart‘s website has a long article about a book-themed baby shower if you need more inspiration.
