Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hodder Children’s


One for competitive dads everywhere, this picture book is all about animal dads trying to make sure their offspring's first word is 'dada'.

Turns out, it's harder than you'd think. The baby cow wants to say 'moo'. The baby bee wants to say 'bzzz'. Are there any kids out there that are going to say 'dada' and make their despairing dad's day?

This story has been thought up by American comedian and TV entertainer Jimmy Fallon - so it's no surprise that it's a silly, funny read.

It's a little bit slight and under-developed, but the angry faces of the animals will certainly get young children giggling and turning the pages.
