For my web site, I'd like to put together a list of suggested books for baby showers.
Full disclosure: there's a certain amount of self-interest involved in this, as I plan to include my new book, The Barefooted, Bad-Tempered Baby Brigade. But that said, I do want to put together a list of books that are particularly fun or apt to give as baby shower presents.
Classics that every Mom and Dad should have. Funny books that hint at the adventure that's yet to come. Unique books that you might not know about unless someone points them out. From sweet and sentimental to funny and irreverent, and everything in between!
To that end... Your suggestions? Please leave them in the Comments below. And if you could, give a brief description of the book and/or why you suggest it. (E.g. is it sweet? Funny? Unique? A childhood favorite? A contemporary classic? Etc.)
