Little ones love playing with their dolls! Celebrate that love with Baby-Boo, I Love You, and follow one imaginative little girl who adores playing mommy. And as she bathes, feeds, and frolics with her doll, she emulates a nurturing parent-child relationship, showing the universal joys of being cared for and cherished.

Sheryl Haft’s delightful text and Jane Massey’s endearing illustrations make this a wonderful read-aloud for every child with a favorite doll or stuffed toy, and a reminder of their own parents’ never-ending love.

Simply adorable! 

This is picture book happiness wrapped up in a story about a young girl's love of playing mommy with her baby doll. From play time to snuggles, to tea time, and nap time, this young girl's imaginative play with caring for her baby doll is simply adorable. With simple wordage, and illustrations that are perfect for capturing young readers attentions, this is a picture book that readers who love imaginative play will love. 

Young children who love playing with their own babydoll will be able to easily identify with this book. They'll see the similar ways they love their baby dolls, as the young girl in the story does. It's also a great gift to give to young kids who may soon become older siblings. 

Check out the trailer for the book: 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
