Today's Monday Discussion is a repeat from a bunch of years ago, but since my baby sister recently had a baby [and a bookish one at that; her name is Harper Lee], I thought I would revisit this popular question.
When buying a books for a new baby, what is your go-to choice. Come on, you are all library people. You know you have a go-to gift book for a baby.
