Book Review: Baby Shower Books 

Published May 2, 2014 at 11:35 a.m.

For nearly a decade, my book club — a group of about 10 women — has been meeting monthly to chat about what we’ve read, catch up on each other’s lives and quaff wine. When the club first formed, we were all childless. Now, there are over a dozen kids between us, ranging from newborn to age 7.

We’ve established a tradition over the years when a "book club baby" comes into the world. In lieu of gifting moms-to-be with onesies and baby blankets, each book club member picks out a children’s book for the little one.

It’s a great way to help moms build up their children’s book libraries. And it’s fun to see what everyone else picks out.

Last weekend, we gathered to celebrate not one, not two, but three book club babies. Two beautiful boys had been born the previous month — these cuties both made cameo appearances at the get-together. Another little guy was scheduled for arrival the following week. 

It was great fun picking out books for each new baby. Since two of them had older siblings already, I decided to select books that the older kids could enjoy now and the newborns would grow into.

Read on to find out about my "book club baby" picks.
