Helen Oxenbury’s board books have delighted a generation of babies.
Now from this most widely loved of artists comes a combined feast for the senses: a pudgy baby touches a cat, a beard, and a blanket; he hears a bird sing, a dog bark, and a watch tick; he sees a flower, an airplane, and the moon; and he can jump, stretch, and dance, creating his own new wonders. Babies are fascinated by other babies just like them - and Helen Oxenbury’s delightful illustrations get to the heart of their ever-expanding world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Helen Oxenbury, artist of the bestselling We're Going on a Bear Hunt and numerous other baby books, puts youngsters in touch with their worlds in this superbly sweet, oversize board book. With gentle colors and soft lines, Oxenbury shows how rich and varied toddlers' experiences of the world can be, constantly bringing new delights as they explore different objects and their own imaginations. To illustrate her message, the author divides the book into five different themes -- touching, seeing, doing, hearing, and pretending -- with a toddler playfully following butterflies, stretching high, listening to Grandpa's watch, pretending to jump like a kangaroo, and more. Each double-page spread covers one of the themes and begins with "I", such as "I touch...," which shows "a worm," "my ball," and "Granddad's beard." All told, many things are enjoyed or imagined by this little guy, and whether big, small, far away, or close up, this toddler is always curious to discover them.

Your toddler will be inspired to discover the many things in his or her world, too, after reading Oxenbury's book. Excellent for sharing and a great method for getting tots' mental wheels turning, this "big baby book" is tender, thoughtful inspiration. Matt Warner

Publishers Weekly
A quartet of board books-I Touch; I See; I Can; and I Hear-unite for one oversize volume: Helen Oxenbury's Big Baby Book. Each page divides into a trio of panels, in which the baby explores the world around him ("I touch.../ a worm/ my ball/ Granddad's beard") and demonstrates his growing physical competence ("I can.../ crawl/ sit/ stamp/ jump/ fall/ dance," etc.). Nursery-hued pencil-and-watercolor illustrations demonstrate each thing or action.
