One word to describe this book Soothing 

The book in 20 words or less – The book captures your baby’s first year in the form of poetry and soothing sayings. 

What I thought – A new baby in the home brings joy but he or she also creates the need for adjustment in terms of lifestyle and the parents’ relationship. The poems in the book are able to create a bond between parent and child. The author, Jeremy Eisler, has put a lot of thought on which poems to share as the poems reflect on your baby’s development. 

My favourite poem was “Peek-A-Boo” because it reminded me of my own childhood and keeping children entertained with this never gets old. “Missed Manners” is also another favourite because it is the beginning of a child learning manners with an adult by his or her side. 

The book is an ideal read for a new parent or as a gift for someone who is expecting. Who knows maybe it will be one of those books you can pass from one generation to another? 

Why you should read this book – If you have just had a baby or a grandparent wanting to share your baby’s first moments, this is the book you’ll need.
