Endearing rhyming text highlights the developmental milestones babies encounter before their first birthday–crying, smiling, eating, teething,rolling, crawling, walking, and talking.
Kirkus says: From the first, Day's verse has the appeal and feel of an original nursery rhyme: "First cry. / First meal. / First burp. / Warm feel." Emberley's accompanying pencil-and-digital illustrations are gorgeously human in their depictions of parents caring for their babies….An excellent first book for baby—and parents, too.
