What does Baby say?
It's such a busy day for Baby! There's hair to be brushed, peekaboo to play, sandboxes and swings, spoons and sleep. And readers are invited to join in the fun - from getting dressed to go OUT! to the park, to eating dinner and having a SPLASH! in the bath.
JUDY HINDLEY is the author of more than fifty children's books, including DOES A COW SAY BOO? and the immensely popular EYES, NOSE, FINGERS, AND TOES. Of BABY TALK, she says, "I wanted this book to be a really inviting way to reinforce a baby's first connections with language - especially words for those all-important events like going out, going bump, and going splash! My hope is that all the family will join in." Judy Hindley lives in England.
BRITA GRANSTRÖM studied graphic design and illustration at Konstfack, Sweden's National School of Art and Design in Stockholm. She has illustrated more than twenty-five children's books, including DOES A COW SAY BOO? and EYES, NOSE, FINGERS, AND TOES by Judy Hindley. She says of BABY TALK, "I loved illustrating Judy's text. My youngest son, Frej, was the model and my inspiration. It was great fun. I hope you enjoy it." Brita Granström also lives in England.
