Baby Talk: A Book of First Words and Phrases

by Judy Hindley
Illustrated by Brita Granström

Published by Candlewick Press, 2006
32 pages
ISBN: 0-7636-2971-5

Ages 1-3

Words and phrases common to young children punctuate a simple rhyming text about a baby’s activities over the course of an afternoon. Baby’s nap ends (“Up!”). There’s a trip to the park (“Out!”). A trip down the slide ends with a bump (“Owww!”), followed by another try on the slide (“Wheee!”). When playtime is over (“Bye-bye”) baby and mommy head home for dinner (“It’s all gone!”) and a bath (“Splash!”) before baby goes to bed (“Night-night . . . ”). Judy Hindley’s appealing story reflects how everyday experiences form the foundations of learning in the lives of young children. The child-friendly text is set against Brita Granström’s inviting illustrations. (MS) ©2006 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
