Good book to bring as a baby shower gift?

My best friend is having a sprinkle next month. Instead of giving a card with the gifts I wanted to give a book. But, I'm sort of stumped on what book to give. What is a good book for a little boy? 

For big sister I am giving her a copy of Julius The Baby of the World. It is one of my kids favorite books and its about a big sister with a new baby brother. 

Maybe I could skip a book for baby and give a book to my friend instead? But then again... I'm stumped on what to give her lol.

Anything but Goodnight Moon. That is the only book (besides The Old Man and the Sea) that I absolutely hate.

I thought about doing a Dr Seuss book. Especially since they are on sale for cheap everywhere right now. I need to see what books they already have. I want to try & not get a duplicate.

I loved getting books at my baby showers, it was a perfect way to start my daughters book collection! And her love of reading! I always give books to the big sibling now!

I can't get through that without crying!!!  My sons loved it too.  The other one I loved was The Runaway Bunny.
