A clever and bouncy text, vibrant ink-and-collage illustrations and an impossibly cute baby make this the perfect gift book for baby showers, and it even includes a poster on the reverse of the jacket that new parents can use to record their own little ones' spectacular achievements.

The answer is a resounding “Yes!” . . . Even though sweet books on new babyhood abound, this stands out as a fresh addition.” –Kirkus Reviews
“A much-loved newborn is brought home to his family and a string of happy milestones follow. . . . This is a charming journey through a fast-paced 12 months that parents can share with their own beautiful babies.” –School Library Journal
