Description

The first in a beautifully photographed series of four board books showing us the major stages in a baby's first year

This beautifully photographed series of four board books shows us the major stages in a baby's first year -- the first day, sitting, crawling and walking. Because the images are shot by the baby's own photographer-father, we see a very intimate portrait of this baby's world -- something an outsider could never capture. Mother, father and big brother also appear.

These books will fascinate babies, who love to look at other babies. They will also be of great interest to older siblings and even new parents, who can see what is to come or enjoy memories of earlier phases.

Hello, Baby!

Hello, Baby! is a beautifully photographed book and is the first in a series of four board books about a baby’s first year of life. This book reveals to us the activities of the baby’s first day. We see the baby eating, being changed, getting hugs from his big brother, bathing, napping and cuddling with mom. Shot by the baby’s own photographer- father, Jorge Uzon, the pictures offer a very intimate glimpse of this child’s world. Mom, dad and big brother also appear, showing us the excitement and joy of the baby’s arrival. Close-ups of the baby’s fingers and toes, and of the baby crying and bathing, bring that first day to life. You can almost hear the plaintive cry of a newborn when you look at these photographs. Hello, Baby! would be a wonderful way to prepare an older sibling for the arrival of a new brother or sister. Also in this series are the titles Look Around, Baby; Go, Baby, Go! and Not a Baby Anymore!. These books will fascinate babies who love to look at other babies and will prepare older siblings and new parents for what is to come or reminisce about the past.

Hello, Baby! (Hello Baby)

This infant-friendly board book follows the first day in the life of a newborn baby as he eats, cries, sleeps and is given a bath and cuddled. A wonderful book to share with a young child who is about to become a big brother or sister.
