Book Instead of Card Wording? — The BumpMore and more new moms are asking for baby shower books. It makes sense if you think about it. Of all the things you may do with your child, reading may have the most profound and lasting effects. Babies who learn language through hearing books tend to have larger vocabularies and learn other languages easier. Older children learn to love the security of curling up with a caregiver and a good book. In fact, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, parents who read to their infants give them an academic boost for years to come.
Five Best Books for Baby Showers
