Books for Baby



BabyShowerImageSummer baby shower season is in full swing and I love the new practice of party guests bringing a book to start the baby's library--kind of like the old bring-a-recipe-to-a-bridal-shower idea.  Except, of course, better...

So, what book should you get? There are always the tried and true--Goodnight Moon,  Where the Wild Things Are--but if you're looking for something a little more recent but still a winner, here are some that I recommend:
