When I had my baby shower for Em, I requested books to start her library in place of greeting cards. We asked all the guests to gift their favorite childhood books and inscribe them to Em. Thus started her first Board Books Home Library. There is no gift more powerful than the gift of storytime. Starting early with books is the best way to introduce children to a lifetime of learning.
