I have the opportunity to buy a baby gift for an expecting friend, and naturally I want to buy books. A big basket of magical books that I'd like to give to every baby, you know what I mean?
The basket will need to include a volume of Mother Goose. My children and I especially liked this one, edited by Iona Opie and illustrated by Rosemary Wells, which sends me into a little reverie of nostalgia just looking at the cover.
And I think a Tana Hoban title or two is in order.
But I'd love to hear from you if you work with babies and toddlers, or are parenting them, or just remember your family's best books from that stage.
What book would you put in the basket?
