The best way to raise a reader, or to get young people into books is to start them as early as possible. If you have a baby this year (or have a family member or friend with a baby), bookish gifts are a must.
These book gifts for babies will start the babies in your life off on the right literary foot.

10 Book Gifts for Babies
Make sure the babies in your life start out the right way (as readers, naturally) with these 10 book gifts for babies.
Goodnight Moon is my family’s favorite baby book. I love the board book version, because it is easier for young babies to hold.
What is the only thing cooler than the best books for babies? Baby-ized classic literature! BabyLit transforms classic literature into baby-friendly board books and the result is more awesome than you can imagine. I particularly like this one of Jane Eyre, but all of them are amazing.
Book Quote Prints
What better way to start a baby in your life off as a reader than by dressing said baby in literature-themed clothing? My particular favorite onesie is this one by Out of Print Clothing.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
My daughter, Bo, was obsessed with The Very Hungry Caterpillar for about a year. It was the only story she wanted to hear. She loved how eating too much made the caterpillar sick.
Pat the Bunny
Pat the Bunny is another great classic that we love. Something about touch and feel books makes all babies and toddlers happy. All babies need Pat the Bunny in their book collection.
Peter Rabbit Toys
Literature-Themed Jack in the Box
When we went to a bookstore recently, Bo spent most of the time playing with this Curious George Jack in the Box. She loved both that it featured one of her favorite characters and that it popped out at her.
Book-themed pajamas are not just for adults. There are a few baby versions featuring famous literary characters as well. These Madeline pajamas look like a lot of fun for a young book-lover to receive this Christmas.
Stuffed Book Characters
A lot of baby/kid books feature plush characters. Why not bring those books to life with real-life stuffed versions of book characters? We have this version of Spot, and it’s one of my favorite stuffed toys. Bo loves it because she is currently in a dog-loving phase.

This Weeks Lit Lover Features
Last week, Heather shared a quest she is on of reading more non-fiction books in November (definitely a worthy challenge!). Over at Chat Between the Chapters, they are discussing their favorite bookish cats. Crookshanks is probably my favorite bookish cat of all time. How can you not love him?
