I just thought I would share with all of you something that I did at my showers. Being that I am a reading teacher, reading is soooo important to me! At my showers, on the invitations, I requested that instead of buying a card, that people purchase a book and sign the inside of it with a message for Bella instead. Cards are sooo expensive, and you can buy a little book for cheap. I put a cute poem on the invitations to let people know.

I am pretty sure that this is the poem that I used, but there are a bunch on the web if you search...

I want to be a bright child
As smart as I can be.
That is why I'm hoping
My mom will read to me.
If you plan to bring a card
Please take another look,
I would like to learn my ABC's
From your favorite storybook.
Please sign your name
As your personal touch.
Baby (last name) thanks you
Beary, beary much.
Or, replace the last paragraph with the following:
Please add your name and a note
Then I'll know you've done your part.
Some day I'll surely thank you
From the bottom of my heart.

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my very special siggy!

That's a really good idea. I think I might do that for the next baby gift I give someone instead of a card.

such a cute idea! I've thought about asking for classic children's books at my shower since I'm not registering for much. The poem idea is really cute!

I love this idea!

I suggested this for Elizabeth's 1st birthday and a few people did it. I am going to do it with this baby at my shower.
