As the books are shared with them, babies absorb concepts of love, safety, and confidence. At times lively, at times gentle, these sturdy-format baby board books reflect what every parent wants: a happy, healthy baby. Includes tips for parents and care providers. A perfect gift for baby showers, newborns, and birthdays.
“The photos are bright-eyed and buoyant . . . Both books provide easily digestible tips for parents and caregivers on healthy eating and ways to encourage reaching, grabbing, and interaction. This and its companion are pleasant additions to the Happy Healthy Baby series.”—Kirkus Reviews
