Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

I love this inspiring book with it's phenomenal happy up-beat vibe and stunning detailed illustrations. It encourages babies to dream big and follow those dreams and their hearts.  

I have always loved the theatre and was a drama teacher myself so this tale is very close to my own heart.  "Broadway Baby" is a delightful rhyming book and truly a love letter to glittering Broadway.  

It is a celebration of aspiration, imagination and creativity.  I highly, highly recommend it.  It is a winner and kids will love it!
