Requesting baby books at baby showers instead of cards is really becoming a common practice and I LOVE it! You can still sign the book, it will be held on to for much longer than a card, and for years to come the family will have books given by the people that mean the most!
Some of our favorite books are from the baby shower we had with our oldest. The books were either sweet as ever or classics that I was so happy to have in our book collection. I wanted to share some of those books to give you an idea of what goes over well and will be cherished for years.

Best Children’s Books to Give at Baby Showers
Pregnant women are hormonal and let me tell you reading the baby books I was given at my baby shower with the little notes had me in tears and just so ready for my new baby. I love knowing my kids have those notes of love to look back on even when those people are gone.
Traditional Baby Books
“A person’s a person, no matter how small,” Dr. Seuss
These will be the classic baby books that you had when you were a kid or read to your own kids. From Dr. Seuss to new book series that just need to be a staple in every child’s book collection.
Dr. Seuss is such an iconic figure in children’s books! Some of his books are a must daily read in our household!
You just can’t go wrong with any Dr. Seuss book. We have a little section on our book shelf just for Dr. Seuss books and I can not wait to get more. I personally want them all! Up next will be some more classic baby books that are sure to be a hit.
The Tractor Mac book series is an incredible series about a tractor on a farm. From him being new on the farm, to working on building a barn and working in the apple orchard. This is one of our favorite series and there is one DVD that Adella is in love with.

Llama Llama is another book series that is a staple in our house. It is so fun for the toddlers because it has a lot of rhyming and you can really get into reading them. Not to mention it is on Netflix!!!
Emotional Baby Books to Give At Baby Showers
These baby books are sure to cause some tears, but none the less they are must have baby books. I received some classic tear jerkers and some new ones that quickly became my favorite to read.
I honestly hope everyone just starts to do books instead of cards at baby showers. For the cost of a good card you can find a baby book that will mean so much more. Reading is so important for early learning and to always have that reminder of those who love you.
I hope this was a great reminder of some of the best children’s books that are sure to make anyone happy to read!
