I talked a bit about why we love Barefoot Books in my recent post, but today I want to share some ideas about how you can incorporate Barefoot Books into your gift-giving at baby showers.
1. A book in place of a card
When I was pregnant with my first child, my friends threw me a surprise baby shower. To make the party extra special, each guest was asked to purchase a book to give in place of a card. They each wrote a message for us somewhere on their book. To this day, it still warms my heart every time I pick up one of these books and see a thoughtful message from a friend inscribed in the pages.

2. Grow-with-baby gifts
A new parent will tell you that although it may be fun opening a thousand newborn-sized baby outfits, the gifts that get used the most are ones that grow with your baby. I love the book "Bear on a Bike" because it will appeal to even the youngest babies: the colors are captivating and the story incorporates repetition that a small child loves. Yet this is a book that will hold a child's attention easily into his toddler years and beyond: there are many subtle details to notice, objects to name and identify, and situations to discuss. Best of all you can purchase the matching "Bear on the Go" puzzle and create a gorgeous baby shower gift for less than $20.

3. Create new classicsWhat I love most about Barefoot Books is that these books are not the usual additions to a new parent's library. Of course there are the classic books that every parent wants to own, but do you really want to be the gift-giver who provides a 3rd copy of Goodnight moon to an expectant mother? Take some time to create new favorites for our young readers and give something unexpected and unique. I highly recommend "Clare Beaton's Nursery Rhymes," "Who's in the Garden," and "I took the Moon for a Walk."
