Little Big Boubo by Beatrice Alemagna


Little Big Boubo by Beatrice Alemagna

I'm not a baby anymore, believe me. I can walk backwards without falling over...almost! The latest book from award-winning illustrator Beatrice Alemagna is a tender and humorous reflection on toddlerhood that will strike a chord with parents and toddlers alike. Boubo is eager to show that he's not a baby anymore - he knows he is on his way to being a 'big kid' and is proud to demonstrate his new-found abilities to prove his case. Little Big Boubo portrays a unique stage of child development with empathy and humour, and is a delightful celebration of a parent's love from one of the most prominent and exciting illustrators working today.
