Kid Talk Tuesday: Going to a baby shower and need a gift?

This week’s guest post is from Cheryl Kerwin, Sr. Marketing Manager at Tyndale.


Tired of giving the same `ol baby shower gift? Are you tired of buying those baby afghans, diaper genies and onesies? We may have an answer for you. Why not give the gift of books! They can provide hours of treasured one-on-one time reading between mommy and child. Please consider our suggested titles below the next time you find yourself going to a baby shower.

Remember the moments…

god created

God Created Me Memory Book by Dandi Daley Mackall

Most baby books begin when a baby is born, but this one begins when the world was born—from creation, to mom and dad, to baby. There is space to record how mom and dad met, and what they were like as kids. There’s even a family tree. With helpful charts and plenty of space for photos, this baby book will be treasured forever. The acid-free pages are safe for photos and beautifully designed with Little Blessings artwork throughout.
