Default Poem for Baby Shower Invites

There's a poem for baby shower invitations that talks about bringing a baby book instead of a greeting card. can anyone tell me what it is, or help me find it?

here is a website with some ideas---if you scroll down about 1/2 there are 2 poems about bringing books instead of cards. HTH!

Found this too:
I want to be a bright child
As smart as I can be.
That is why I'm hoping
My mom will read to me.

If you plan to bring a card
Please take another look.
I would like to learn my ABC's
From your favorite storybook

Please sign your name
As your personal touch.
Baby (last name) thanks you
Beary, beary much.

OR replace the last paragraph with the following:

Please add your name and a note
Then I'll know you've done your part.
Some day I'll surely thank you
From the bottom of my little heart.

Bring a Book

As (Mother-to-be's name) due date is coming near,
We're inviting friends and family dear.
To choose a favorite story or fairy tale
That you would like Baby ________ to hear.
Instead of a card, please let (mother-to-be's name)look,
At your special choice of a book,
and then to Baby _________ she will read
With all the love a newborn will need.
So with a personal touch, please choose a book
And in it then your name do put.
It need not cost more than a card
Just pick a favorite, it shouldn't be hard.
author unknown

~ author unknown ~

Although cards are nice
They're read once or twice
Maybe three or four times at best
A book is a treasure
Forever and Forever
So instead of a card
To be put aside
Please give the little baby
A book with your name inside
It will be read to our little tyke
Before bed each night
And we will thank you
Forever and Forever!
~ submitted by Erin, Thanks! ~

A card is nice, its sentiment sweet,
But a book will keep baby on her feet.
For years to come, baby will read
Longing for stories will never be a need.
A shelf full of wisdom for all to give,
For baby to keep as long as she shall live.
Filling the shelf should not be hard,
If you would please sign a book instead of a card.
