What did you like about the book? This is another book in the series of newborn books. It is designed as the first book a mother reads to her newborn and the cover instructs the mother to snuggle up with the baby and just read. The words are written in verse and the illustrations show a baby being introduced into his new house. It shows the hallway where he’ll take his first steps, and the dining room where he’ll take his first bite. It is a calming book that will grow with the baby. Older children will love the illustrations and will start to understand the text.
