Synopsis

Silly Baby by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick

Beth has a new baby brother. He cries, he poos, he gets all the attention. Silly, silly Baby! But grandma shows Beth that he is small and soft and can smile at his big sister - and Beth thinks that maybe he isn't so silly after all. This charming story about a child learning to cope with a new baby in the family is simply but very effectively written and is complemented by beautifully expressive illustrations that have wide appeal. Perfect for every family with a second or third baby, it also meets the needs of early years curriculums in helping children to understand that it is good to share. It follows Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick's highly popular Silly Mummy, Silly Daddy and Silly School which also feature Beth and her family.

Reviews

The internal illustrations, all of which have been boldly rendered by the accomplished artist Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, warmly portray silly baby's antics. The colours are bright and the alternation of full-page spreads and framed vignettes add a whimsical cartoon-like feel to the work. || Will appeal to younger children who will be able to empathise with Beth when the new baby arrives in her family, and help them to talk about their feelings.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
