You Are My Baby: Garden

“Instead of a card, please bring a book for baby to enjoy for years to come.”

A line you’ll most likely read on your next baby shower invitation– and really, what perfect add-on to your gift than a book for baby’s new library?!

You Are My Baby: Garden would make the perfect choice for that baby shower. you are my baby gardenThis is a different kind of board book– one that might catch little ones by surprise. There are big pages (for the big animals or insects,) and mini pages (that house all of the baby animals or insects.) It begins like this:

*Turn big page to see the mother bird*

“You sing a happy song in our leafy tree.”

*Turn little page and discover the baby*

“You are my baby, little hatchling.”

Aww. I can’t help but feel the love these colorful creatures feel for their babies. After Momma Bird, you’ll see pairs of spiders, snails, squirrels, and last but not least, sweet little bees (ahem… is it a bee themed gender neutral baby shower?!)

I love reading this book and feeling sentimental warm motherly feelings to B, and I can’t wait to read it to our NEW little baby in November. There are several You Are My Baby themed books for you to choose from– for a gift, or for your own sweet little peanut.
