Unique Baby Shower Idea

In a recent baby shower invitation we received, 
the expectant couple had a unique idea: 
they asked for children’s books in lieu of baby cards. 

How cool is that—especially for book lovers like us!

I’m challenged to select
between a favorite from my own childhood,
Caps for Sale,

or one of my kids’ favorites like
Where the Wild Things Are

Or I could support a writer friend,
Michelle Medlock Adams
by buying a copy of her
delightful book,
Counting Cows

I also thought it would be fun 
to give a children’s picture Bible 
in a modern translation.
