Pat-a-cake and peek-a-boo. You see me and I see you! Celebrate baby’s busy day with this fun and playful English-Spanish bilingual baby book. Gurgle, babble, grunt, and coo. Watch how Daddy waves to you! Babies will enjoy and respond to the happy sounds, joyful movements, bouncy rhythm, and vivid black-and-white photos of babies in this rhyming book. A section in the back for parents and caregivers provides playtime tips in both languages.
