A Book Registry for Every Occasion

We've Got You Covered

Prepare with confidence

We start you off with a diverse list of 60 books to consider, including classics, high contrast, touch, social-emotional, and more.  This replaces the need to create your own list from scratch! 

Inclusive from the start

Expanding on the idea of a traditional shower, Father Fests are a time for Dad to get support from family and friends.  Reading is an excelling way for fathers to bond with babies and be deeply involved from day one.

More books, less toys

Books are an important part of development and childhood memories, and what better time to invest in a growing mind than a birthday!

Children hear more than you think!  Books provide context for new and potentially confusing topics, and give caregivers a way to approach complex topics.

Did You Know Books Can ...

Nurture parent-child bonding

Reading together provides opportunities for  human contact, affection, attention and shared laughter - all of which lead to deeper connections.

Build lifelong capacity to learn

Being read to improves a child's ability to absorb and mentally organize information by 30%.

Books can be used to fill idle time, including at meal times.  Children can be entertained and satisfied with engaging books more often than we think.
