Bring a Book Baby Shower

Bringing a book in place of a card for a baby shower is a way to start building a library for the baby. 

Reading to children is so important – we all know that, right?

Requesting guests bring a book in instead of a card is brilliant.  “Bring a book” baby showers are especially appropriate for a Grandma Shower. 

And here is why.

Grandmother Showers should be a celebration of the new Grandma and her new role. 

It’s not intended to be a gift grab or delivered with an expectation of over-the-top festivities. 

However, a book is the perfect small gesture that has purpose and meaning, gives Grandma something to look forward to (reading to her Grandkids), and expresses your best wishes to her. 

So consider making your Grandmother Shower celebration a “Bring a Book” shower.  (And forget the big gifts)

Remember to write a note in the front of the book.  Something like “To Baby ___________ ” or their first name, if you know it. 

And “With Love From:  ___________”. 

You could even include a short message if you’d like – “I hope you enjoy this book as much as Johnny did” or “This book reminded us of you”. 

A special message from you will be a reminder of who gave them the book, and it will give the parents another opportunity to talk about you and the role you have in their lives.

Here are some of the best books for a “bring a book” baby shower.

Best Baby Books for a Baby Shower”

This first book on the list is a picture book of some of the first words kids usually learn. Dog, cat, chair, car, and many others. 

My Grandkids loved this book when they were little! 

I had an earlier version of it that is now about worn out.

This is a board book and has 100 pictures with the word written below. 

It is a helpful tool to use when they first start talking. 

At first, you point to the picture and tell them what it is. 

Next, they repeat the word after you say it. 

Then eventually you can ask what it is – and they know!

I’ve always thought watching a baby learn new things is an incredible experience. 

And if we can encourage them and be a part of it, well, that’s even better!

So take a look at the books on the list and choose the one that is right for you.
