One of the first-ever books about astrology for kids, Astro Baby is for babies who like to gaze at bright colors, toddlers who are fascinated by images of babies and animals, older children who like learning about their zodiac signs, and grown-ups who are obsessed with their star signs.
The first in Michelle Tea's charming Astro Pals series, Astro Baby shows kids that everyone has unique qualities that make them who they are. Created by superstar scribe Michelle Tea and illustrated with psychedelic abandon by Mike Perry (animator for Broad City), Astro Baby is a fun, clever spin on astrology that will captivate young and old alike.
