Synopsis

Baby Ruby Bawled by Malaika Rose Stanley

Baby Ruby won't stop crying. Dad gives her a bath, Mum gives her a feed, Nana takes her for a drive and Grandad walks her around the garden. But Ruby keeps on bawling. At last her brother Theo has a go and sings her a special song he makes up. The whole family are so tired after all of this, they fall asleep - all except Ruby.

Reviews

This is a nicely-tuned unexpected ending to the story, and the strong, painterly illustrations are quite superb. -- Elizabeth Schlenther Book for Keeps An endearing depiction of a scenario all too familiar to many families with small babies, which is amusingly and sympathetically illustrated in Ken Wilson-Max's trademark style. BookTrust A sweet family story simply told with lovely repetition and, of course, the wonderful alliteration of the title. Books I Read My Son A lovely story about an extended family working together, which will appeal to all those who have ever wondered what to do with a bawling baby. Parents in Touch A humorous and tender family story with special parent appeal. -- Angela Redfern School Library Association

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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.
