Baby days

Alison Lester
Allen & Unwin
ISBN: 9781760111724           RRP: $16.99

From a gift-box series written almost 20 years ago - Board books for babies – this collection is now released as a single book, a kind of chapter book for early readers. The titles are the same - Bibs and boots; Bumping and playing; Crashing and splashing; and Happy and sad - each skipping through the days of toddlers at home, work and play. Transparent watercolour pictures have illustrated borders, a signature of style. The padded cover and sturdy card pages are safe for a new generation of toddler handling.
