This new board book series, Buttercup Babies gives a fresh take on Shizue Arakawa's iconic characters with peek-a-boo die cuts, touch-and-feels and early learning concepts. Babies will sharpen their motor skills with interactive elements while feeling soothed by the touch-and-feel spots and relate to the adorable child-like characters.

Mimi is having a picnic in the park with a special friend—who is it? Babies will enjoy feeling the smooth apple, rubbing the crunchy biscuit, petting the fluffy dandelion, and peeking with the characters through clever cutouts, all while guessing who Mimi’s surprise guest is.
