I'd like to give a few books as baby shower presents, while avoiding the books that are really well-known. Please share your under the radar gems!

Friends have requested gifts of childrens' books for their upcoming baby shower.
I'd like to avoid giving them books that are standards on everyone's radar and favorites list (e.g., Goodnight Moon, Very Hungry Caterpillar).
My budget is $60. Books for any age in childhood are fine, but I prefer to skew to 5 and under. My friends like to travel, are into the arts (theater and dance especially) and are generally very eco-conscious...but they are open to books of all stripes/themes.
What are your favorite childrens' books that are lesser-known?
