Judy Hindley worked as an editor and author of non-fiction books for many years before going on to write children's books. Her titles include the highly successful Eyes, Nose, Fingers, Toes and Does a Cow Say Boo? She lives in Wiltshire. Brita Granstrom, a Swedish artist, won the Smarties Book Prize Silver Award for The World's Full of Babies and the TES Junior Information Book Award for What's Under the Bed? She lives in Northumberland.
PreS-From morning hair brushing to "night-night" with a teddy bear, listeners take a lively tour of a baby's day at the playground, at dinner, and in a bath. Hindley's unfussy rhyme offers on-target opportunities for concept development: "low," "high," "bye," "out." Granstrom's festive gouache-and-pencil cartoons shine in this large format. From single snapshots of the star in a red beret to the multicultural cast in the double-page playground scenes, toddlers will be engaged but never overwhelmed.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
