15 Things Not to Do With a Baby
Publisher: Frances LIncoln
There's a new baby in the family! It's going to be a lot of fun being a sister or a brother, but there are some simple rules to follow to make sure the baby is safe and happy. Full of helpful advice like 'don't peg the baby on the washing line' and 'don't play the trumpet when the baby is sleeping' is mixed up with 'don't send the baby up in a hot air balloon' and 'don't swap the baby for a guinea pig'.
Frances Lincoln ensure cultural diversity is represented so these illustrations present a mixed race family. The style is fresh and young with beautiful colours and some lovely silly scenes as the baby is put in all sorts of perilous (cuddling an octopus!) and not so perilous (eating all the chocolate!) situations. A simple and sweet little idea that will make tots who have new baby siblings really giggle.
