ACHUKA Book of the Day 19 Jul 2021
“Little ones, perhaps new big brothers and sisters, will cuddle with a loving grown-up and find comfort and reassurance here.” KIRKUS
A really joyful book from a top author-illustrator team tracing the milestones of babies’ first twelve months – sleeping, crying, laughing, looking, gurgling, eating crawling… and at last toddling.
The book has delightful endpapers and is expertly designed throughout – a real treasure.
The creators note, underneath their dedications: “This book talks about the first year in babies’ lives, but not all babies do the same things at the same age. Mary (who never did master balancing) and Ros (who didn’t’t walk till she was eighteen months old).”
Follow five families and their babies from birth to around 12 months, with all the excitements, challenges and joys of that first year with a new baby in the world. With lots to look at and point to, this diverse and inclusive celebration of babies will be loved by babies, older siblings and grown-ups too!
