Babies and toddlers might not be able to go to school or ride a bike, but this does not mean that they don’t keep busy. Their days are full of people who love them, everyday activities, happy moments, and little adventures.

For this unique little alphabet book, the author and illustrator have created twenty-six pages filled with simple two-word phrases and warm images that show some of the things that babies and toddlers do during their days. Each page captures a moment in a little child’s life that young children will recognize and appreciate. On the B page we see a baby being bathed, and on the H page the words “Hug me” accompany a picture of a father hugging his little daughter. On the N page a mother is seen giving her baby a “nuzzle,” and on the S page a little girl reads a story to her little sibling and some stuffed animals.

This is a charming alphabet book that is sure to become a firm favorite with little children and their families.
