Your friend is having a baby – what do you give her as a gift for the little one?
A book, of course. Goodnight Moon, or one of the other three million picture books I loved as a little kid.
In fact, any kid that grows up with me around will have to endure receiving books from me for any and all occasions. I’m a firm believer in the power of words, and God help any kid that doesn’t like to read but has me to babysit him or her.
