Tacky or a go?!?

Ok, a really dear friend of mine is pregnant. She has three older kids (2 in college and one middle school aged, all boys). Well, to everyone's surprise, they are now having a girl! :-) they are ecstatic, it was a grand surprise, her DH was supposed to be getting a vasectomy soon, she did not want any more kids haha. But he was dead set on wanting more. Needless to say, she is very happy now!
Anyhow, I really want to give her a small shower for us fellow teachers, like a brunch type thing. I really wanted to do a theme like instead of gifts just bring your favorite childhood book? Or a small package of diapers? Is that tacky? I think it would be easier on everyone just to pick a book or diapers right? Or is it completely tacky??
Suggestions? Please be easy on me lol :-)
I know she will have plenty of gifts from her family, which is why I though just for us small group of co workers, I'd do something like such :-)

it sounds cute to me...I mean yall are all teachers so why not do the book thing?  I mean then the baby girl will already have a wonderful library of books for Mommy and Daddy to read to her and for her to try to read.
