What Is a Good Book for a Baby Shower?

What is a good book for a baby shower?

That’s what my friends like to ask me!

And if you’re like me, you love it when new mommies get gifted books! At the shower for my friend’s first grandchild, they actually had a Red Flyer wagon (to gift to the new family) and it’s sole purpose was to load it up with baby books that they had requested us to bring! So adorable!!!

So I wanted to let you know about my newest book baby!

BEDTIME WITH DADDY will release September 6, 2022!

A companion to the award-winning board book, BEDTIME WITH MOMMY, this will be the perfect addition to gifts for the children in your life. Hugs, prayers, and lots of good-night snuggles make this book so precious for little ones to hold and have…both for Daddy and his own snugglebug!

I know so many of my friends have mentioned that they want to purchase multiples of BEDTIME WITH DADDY for baby showers and even early Christmas gift shopping, so if you’d like to join in the fun, you can pre-order your copies today!

During July, all pre-orders get a 40% discount at the publisher’s house at this link. CLICK HERE to take advantage of this amazing sale and stock up for the babies in your life!

Or if you prefer online shopping, CLICK HERE to pre-order your copies today on Amazon.

I wanted to give you a sneak peak into two of my favorite spreads in this book!

I love penguins. So of course, I had to put a penguin dad and his chick in the book, snuggling together in the snow. I mean, how precious it is that this animal dad cares for his baby for days and weeks at a time, protecting it against the harshest storms on the planet!

And I just love the art in this picture. This daddy’s keeping his baby safe from harm, that’s for sure! Plus, he’s rocking his little one in his arms. Sigh…I just can’t get enough of this illustration. Thank you, Felia Hanakata for such beautiful art in these books!

Thanks for your support of my books. Thanks for sharing the love of reading with the littles you love.


  1. These books are adorable!

  2. Awww-these books are delightful with your lyrical language. The illustrations bring home all the heart you can ever feel about a mom and dad with their child. Congratulations, Nancy.

    • Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words!

  3. I love them both! Your sweet rhymes and the colorful illustrations will captivate children and their Moms and Dads!

    • Thanks for your sweet encouragement, Kathy!
