UPDATE:

Thanks so much for all of the recommendations! I ended up going to bed early last night, but read through all of your posts today and ordered The Last Stop on Market Street and The Life of/La Vida de Selena.

I’m attending a baby shower this weekend and one of the things the mommy-to-be requested is that in lieu of gifts, she wants all attendees to bring some books to donate to a local reading program (up to kindergarten ish level). Obviously I want to find something that’s more inclusive than the “standard” baby book, so I’m coming to you wonderful people for recommendations.
