What to expect: Ducks, Rhyme, Bedtime story

Darling and precious are just two of the words that come to mind after reading A Cuddle for Little Duck. This is a book so easy to love. The illustrations are rich, vibrant, and sweet, and the text rhymes so gently and sincerely. Little Duck has such a busy day and is need of a good night sleep. It’s a great soothing bedtime book for the youngest babies, and its heavy duty board-book binding will stand up to drool as they explore their world with all of their senses. It’s also a calming read for the liveliest toddlers. The lap-size makes it a great choice for toddlers and their soft chubby fingers to practice their page turning, as well as providing larger than life illustrations that are more alluring to their busy eyes. This is the kind of book that you want for your own kids, and all of your friends kids too! An adorable baby shower gift.

Other books I like to give as baby shower gifts: Someday by Alison McGhee and On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman.
