Review: Itsy-Bitsy Babies

Young children love - love! - looking at pictures of other babies. They enjoy seeing, talking about and copying the facial expressions and activities in the pictures.

It's no wonder, then, that this book has been such a hit.

With favourite activities such as clapping, peek-a-boo, identifying body parts, playing dress-ups, cuddles, kisses and more - this makes reading time even more fun than usual.

This book is appealing to children for another important reason: the repetitive, rhythmic text and soft, pastel illustrations feel comfortable and safe to children, making this a perfect quiet story before bedtime.

These masters of children's books have done it again!
