    A gift I loved when my first son was newborn was the complete works of Beatrix Potter. This was a reminder that our new family was not all about what you put into the baby’s hands but also the shared time you will have reading to the child in the future. It was a hardcover edition combining all those stories with beautiful color illustrations.

    I’m a fan of Alison Jay’s board books, ABC and 123. Simple letter and number books that are perfect for new babies, illustrated beautifully with enough detail to support repeated reads, even for parents.

    Our go-to shower and new baby book is e.e. cummings’ I Carry Your Heart With Me, illustrated by California artist Mati Rose McDounough. Her newer release is How Do I Love Thee? her interpretation of the Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem. (And with a DAD in the lead role.) Although we carry the book that features a gray-haired mom placing a ladder against her adult son’s window, we always introduce these newer choices to those asking for that one.
