Praise for BAH Said the Baby

"A nifty romp that doubles as a guessing game (with some phonics tied in), this has appeal for large read-aloud crowds as well as siblings who seek a lighter new-baby tale."--Kirkus Reviews

"Simple colorful backgrounds accentuate Plecas's bright and playful illustrations; her cartoon style is humorous and expressive....Parents and children with younger siblings are sure to relate to the pitfalls and joys of communicating with pre-verbal babies."--School Library Journal

"Add this charmer to the lineup for a baby-themed storytime, or share it with the older sibs of an almost-verbal little one."--BCCB
