Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
Twinkle, Twinkle, Diaper You! is the newest book in the Small Talk Books series. This sweet book showcases a baby that needs a diaper change. His loving mother gently picks him up and lays him on the change table all the while talking, cooing and singing her rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" making the event a happy and fun one for both mother and child.
The book encourages parents to interact with their babies, face to face giving them hugs, kisses and using lots of verbal language as they go about their day. It focuses on the first stage of language development and the talented illustrator has featured sparkling stars throughout that mesmerize little babies.
The author has included a note for parents, caregivers, and families by renowned early literacy education expert, Betty Bardige, Ed.D. Love, adoration and happiness flow through this short board book and I highly recommend it.
