birthday registry

growing minds

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

Join the trend to encourage guests to work together to boost a child's library.  Guests love that its meaningful and stress-free.

how it works

1. Sign Up

Simply start by filling out this 4 minute form.  The whole process is free.

 

We'll ask if there are any specific interests the child and parents have that we can incorporate into the book list.

 

Examples:

Trains, space, butterflies, French language, Indian culture, potty training, eating.

2. Book List

We'll generate about 50-70 book recommendations for your guests.  

 

This replaces the need to create your own wishlist!  We will edit the list together to fine tune and remove books you already own.  

 

Guests are also encouraged to go off-list and pick their own special books.

3. Share

Share the registry link with your guests. 

 

Writers block?  View our sample invitations.  Since we don't sell books ourselves, guests are asked to fill out a form to let us know what they've purchased so we can mark those books as claimed to avoid duplicates.
