That said, this may be the first time people can buy something for them and they are understandably excited.

  • My son really likes the book "Don’t push the button!" By Bill Cotter (He’s 10 months old). It’s a really fun board book that has you "push" a button and shake the book to help out the main character of the book. He likes that we get really animated when we read it and he loves to be able to shake the book. I would add it to the list of books to give for Christmas or any other holiday/birthday.

  • One of my favorite kids books ever is "Good Dog Carl" by Alexandra Day. I also love "Wiggle Like and Octopus" by Harriet Ziefert and Simms Taback. One more I would add is "Poke a Dot – Who’s in The Ocean?" by innovative kids.

  • I love giving and receiving books for gifts. I have recently come across the "indestrucitbles" series of books. They are awesome! Babies can chew on them, crinkle them, spit up on them, and they can be thrown in the washing machine. Also, I love the pictures in them, and the prices are cheaper than most board books.

  • I LOVE that butterfly photo album! I live 12 hours from my nieces so this would be perfect for my 18 month old Goddaughter and her future sis/bro! I could be nice and fill it with pictures of all the family, but I love the idea of pictures of my hubby and me hogging the album as sort of a joke! lol. I have way too much time on my hands.
