In the beloved tradition of Robert Munsch's Love You Forever and Emily Winfield Martin's The Wonderful Things You Will Be comes a beautiful rhyming ode to babies from a New York Times bestselling author/illustrator duo--perfect for baby showers, newborn gifts, first birthdays, christenings, and anytime babies are celebrated.
In this unforgettable, squeal-filled, tear-inducing love song to babies and how quickly they grow up, author Kelly DiPucchio's heart-tugging rhyme meets the gorgeous, dimple-cheeked, multicultural babies of illustrator AG Ford. With adorable scenes from the busy life of a baby--peekaboo, feedings, tantrums, giggles--and a final scene that reminds us how they become big kids all too soon, this is the ideal gift for any new parent and their child.
