Ages 3 And Under, Grades P And Under
A universal ode to babies and their milestones that celebrates all the joys in a baby’s first year.
Join three babies, encouraged by their families, as they grow more and more active with each day—crying, smiling, eating, teething, rolling, crawling, walking, and talking—culminating in a birthday celebration for all the kids.
With rhythmic, rhyming text and sweet, soft illustrations, this is the perfect repeat read for babies’—and parents’—first year.
