An Announcement and Gifts for Tiny Readers

Things have been quiet on the blog front lately, and for very good reason. My brother and his dear wife welcomed a sweet baby girl to the world. Her name is Reagan, and she has stolen our hearts.

 

Reagan

 

As the only aunt to this precious pumpkin, it’s my job to turn her into a little reader. I already told her I’d buy her all of the books she could ever want, but I rounded up a few more things I’d love to give to any future tiny reader.

A onesie with a simple message, Read To Me.

 

As I’ve mentioned before, I love these board books of classic literature for baby.

 

Another favorite brand, Out of Print, also makes adorable book cover onesies. Is it weird to have matching clothes with a baby?

And her very own Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Bookish Finds

As a reader and a writer, I like to infuse a little bit of the bookish into my everyday life. I even had a book-themed wedding! For the new Bookish Finds series on Novel, I’ll highlight items I find that are perfect for bibliophiles.

First up, something bookish for the wee babes. I’m thrilled to pieces to be welcoming a niece in May, and I’m attending a baby shower this weekend in celebration. I’ve already purchased a precious onesie from the Paddington Bear line for Gap Baby, but my gift for the shower is my favorite bookish baby gift yet! (Briann, if you’re reading this, now is the time to go to a different page.)

I can’t wait for baby Reagan to get her hands on these adorable, beautifully illustrated board books from BabyLit by Gibbs Smith.


BabyLit by Gibbs Smith

BabyLit bills itself as “a fashionable way to introduce your toddler to the world of classic literature.” And if I’m being completely honest, I’ve even eyed some of these prints for myself. What are your favorite bookish gifts for baby?
