Newborn Gift Collection

  • $95.00

Only 1 left!

Celebrate the birth of a future reader with our gift collection of all things literary, especially chosen for a newborn.

The two books of nursery rhymes and poems are perfect for parents just beginning to read to a baby—they communicate the sounds and rhythms of the spoken word and are books that adults also will delight in as they read them (again and again) to little ones. We’ve also included a “library” of nine tiny board books perfect for tiny hands to grasp. For photo shoots of the new arrival, a onesie, with a Shakespearian quote (“…there was a star danced, and under that was I born.”) and to keep little toes warm, four pairs of The Little Prince mix-and-match socks. How better to bundle these gifts than in a tote made for booklovers? The tote can eventually be used as a “purse” by toddlers, a lunchbox, and, of course, a book bag.

More detailed descriptions of the contents of the Newborn Gift Collection:

Hickory Dickory Dock and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star board books

These cheery board books present a selection of classic nursery rhymes from Itsy Bitsy Spider and Pat-a-Cake to Mary Had a Little Lamb and One, Two, Buckle my Shoe. (The rhymes in Twinkle Twinkle are especially appropriate for bedtime, including Star Light, Star Bright and Wee Willie Winkie.) Each book is 6-3/8" x 6-5/8, with 24 pages.

Haiku Baby and Haiku Night board books

We love the soothing tone and the poetry itself in this pair of board books. In Haiku Baby, the simple delights in baby’s natural world—a bird, a fish, a leaf, a snowflake, a raindrop—are celebrated in the traditional Japanese poetic form, the haiku. Haiku Night captures the wonders of nighttime—a firefly, a star, a cricket, a bat, a raccoon, and an owl. These peaceful and calming little books have tabs to encourage small hands to turn the pages. Each book is 6” x 6” with 12 pages.

My Little Library

Nine tiny, chunky board books are perfect for little hands just beginning to grasp and eventually turn pages. They fit snugly into a sturdy storage box with a magnetic closure. Each mini-book features first words on a different topic: Animals, Toys, Clothes, House, Kitty, Bathroom, Mealtime, Fruits and Vegetables, and Backyard, with adorable illustrations on each very thick page. Set of nine 2” x 2” books, each with 12 pages, in presentation storage box.

A Star Danced Onesie

Our onesie celebrates the birth of a stellar baby with Shakespeare’s words from Much Ado About Nothing: “…there was a star danced, and under that was I born.” Softest cotton in cerulean blue with twinkling yellow print, printed in the USA. Size 3-6 months. (Teddy bear not included.)

Little Prince Socks

Our pack of four pairs of baby/toddler socks—each pair a different design—are based on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s illustrations for his classic children’s book The Little Prince. The four pairs—each a different designmix and match beautifully, so if one sock is lost, its “partner” works with the others. Attention to detail: the non-skid soles on the bottom of each sock are in the shape of stars. Made of 75% cotton, 20% polyester, and 5% spandex, they feature non-skid soles. Machine wash warm, tumble dry low, no bleach. Size 0-12 months.
