Baby's First Book by Clare Beaton


Baby's First Book by Clare Beaton

Award-winning artist Clare Beaton presents this exquisite, hand-sewn anthology from her treasure trove of fabrics and bric-a-brac. We've paired it with a collection of forty popular action rhymes. It includes favorites such as I'm a Little Teapot and The Wheels On The Bus , as well as less familiar ditties such as Fishes Swim in Water Clear and My Ship Sailed From China . It is designed to help children develop language and counting skills while improving their coordination and encouraging them to interact. It is from the best-selling illustrator of Mrs Moon: Lullabies for Bedtime (HB with CD: 978-1-84686-066-9) and Mother Goose Remembers (HB with CD: 978-1-84686-003-4).
