Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“These books work on so many levels, with poetry to hear, pictures to talk about, and a powerful message. They give children just the sort of delightful and mind-expanding experiences they need, while leading parents to see the child’s world through a creative and joyful lens. Wonderful medicine for an overly electronic age!” —Dr. Robert Needlman, MD, associate professor of pediatrics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and cofounder, Reach Out and Read, on the Baby Unplugged series

“These are the kinds of books that will bring you and your child together over and over again as you snuggle and read—colorful, welcome additions to your bookshelf.” —Shari Schmidt, OMB (Oh My Books) ChicagoNow blog, on the Baby Unplugged series

“Bright, creative and perfect for young readers just getting introduced to books. Babies and toddlers will love these books as well as the others in the series.” —SocialCafé Magazine, on the Baby Unplugged series

"This book is a beginning of a journey for young children to know and respect the insects we depend on for a healthy environment. The beautiful illustrations are clear and introduce the child to the names of fruit. This is a book to read to your infants and place on your bookshelf for the three-year-old child to read to you!" —Beth Bronsil, retired director, Xavier University Montessori Education Program, former chairperson, American Montessori Society Teacher Education Committee
