Description

It's a Little Baby is a beautiful and engaging lift-the-flap book for little ones from Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb, the creators of the bestselling The Paper Dolls and The Everywhere Bear.

Somebody's hiding. I wonder who.

It's five little babies, doing all the things that babies do - waving, clapping, pointing . . . and more. Featuring satisfyingly simple rhyming text and charming illustrations on fresh white backgrounds, this gorgeous board book is a perfect gift. With big flaps to lift and irresistible actions throughout, children are sure to delight in joining in.

And that's not all, because there's an online song to enjoy too! Written and recorded by Julia Donaldson, the wonderful It's a Little Baby song is the perfect accompaniment to the book and sure to become a favourite sing-along tune.

Review quote

The simple rhyming text is perfect for reading aloud * Parents In Touch * Perfect for new mums who want to read something fabulous to their tiny ones. Perfect for busy little curious babies who are just discovering books for the first time. Hey, it even works on mildly cynical 8 year olds who think they're too old for 'baby' books too! * http://readitdaddy.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/its-little-baby-by-julia-donaldson-and.html * With a rhyming text by Gruffalo creator Julia Donaldson that is just made for reading (or singing) aloud, and illustrations by one of our most talented picture book artists, this superb board book has all the makings of a classic. 'Somebody's hiding, I wonder who?' asks the text on each of five spreads - pull down sturdy flaps for the answer - there are five little babies peeping, waving, pointing, and an invitation to join in too: 'Can you dance? Can you dance? Can you dance too?' It takes extraordinary skill to create a text so short, simple and yet so effective and Rebecca Cobb paints the babies with a delicacy that perfectly captures every move and expression. Simply wonderful. -- Andrea Reece * LoveReading4Kids * Wonderfully engaging, interactive and most importantly fun, this offers the best kind of reading experience for the youngest of readers * Library Mice *
