The list author says: "While other baby shower attendees are giving baby clothes and other things that babies outgrow quickly, I like to give a collection of board books as my gift. It is great to start reading with your kids when they are little babies and these books are favorites for a long time."
"This is the very first book I read to my baby and is now in his baby box. I give it to all my friends for their babies, too. It rhymes, has bold, colorful pictures and a little mirror on the last page for the baby to see himself. My son loved to hear it over and over. It is a delight!"
"The Very Quiet Cricket is awesome because on the last page, the cricket actual talks and my son was always so amazed! Probably better for 1-2 year olds, I usually give it at baby showers for "future readers"!"
