Children love to hear the stories about what they were like and all the wonderful, amazing, interesting, and funny things they did from birth through the first few years of their lives. They also have endless questions about those wonderful years:
Can a new baby see? What makes a baby smile?
Do babies only fuss, cry, sleep, and have their diapers changed?
Why do babies put everything they can in their mouths?
How do babies learn to talk? Can babies laugh? Do all babies crawl?
The award-winning team who created Happy Birth Day! and Hi New Baby! launches a brand-new picture-book series, Growing Up Stories -- books that tell enchanting stories and present fascinating facts about the first five years of life.
The first book of the series, Hello Benny!, tells the story of Benny and celebrates his first year of life -- from his very first sounds to his very first smile, to rolling over, sitting up, and standing, to finding out that he loves bananas and doesn't love peas, to shoving cake in his mouth on his first birthday! Hello Benny! captures the remarkable story of what it's like to be a baby and how babies "grow up."
Combining a beautifully told fictional story with a myriad of facts about babies, Harris and Emberley have created a timeless book for children to enjoy and for families to share together.
