Books for Babies First Year

 Very soon now, one of my grand kids will be turning "one"! I think you know the feeling that I'm talking about when I say, our baby has grown up. And so her toddler days begin! With that being said, I wanted to introduce you to 5 books that make great gifts for babies from Barefoot Books!
