15 of the Best Baby Shower Gift Books for Under $10

on February 10, 2021

I did a “Bring a Book, Not a Card” baby shower, and it was absolutely wonderful! Every time we read one of the books my friends and/or family members signed, we think of them with love.

Of course, the trick to doing this without coming off as greedy to your family and friends is to find a bunch of inexpensive books to put on your registry! The good news is there is a wealth of amazing baby shower gift books to include.

The following list was compiled on 2/10/21, and it is possible that the prices of these books have changed since then. But at the time of this post, they’re under $10! These are all affiliate links. I will likely spend my commission on buying more books! If you’d like a longer list with options at more price point, I have listed some of the best baby shower books regardless of price here. None of them should break the bank!

“Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby”: shameless plug, I have to start with the book I wrote as an exhausted new mom!

“Nita’s Day”: A great way to learn sign language with your baby!

“A is for Activist”: A primer for future change-makers!

“Big Mean Mike”: A funny story about kindness

“Color Wonder: Hooray for Spring” and “Color Wonder: Winter is Here”: Interactive books with color wheels

“Made for Me”: A sweet picture book that dads especially will enjoy!

“Dim Sum for Everyone”: Will make you hungry!

“Each Peach Pear Plumb”: A classic!

“Orange Pear Apple Bear”: This made my baby laugh so much!

“The Going to Bed Book”: Sandra Boynton’s books are so cute!

“Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See”: Another classic!

“The Paper Bag Princess”: Nothing is cuter than hearing a toddler say “Hey, Dragon!”

And here are some that have been recommended to me that I haven’t had a chance to try out myself yet!
