New moms and their babies will love watching Henry say his first word
Baby Henry is under a lot of pressure to say his first word.  His parents are all excited about what it will be, but Henry doesn’t see what the big deal is.  He says things all the time like “bbbghsh” and “boop,” but no one seems to understand what he means.  So, Henry decides that he better start searching for a word.  Luckily, just when he needs it most, his first word comes looking for him.

This picture book about learning to talk is the perfect gift for new parents and big brothers and sisters. Watching Henry hit this developmental milestone is a treat, and new moms will melt when they find out what Henry's first word is.
