Frances has a new baby sister . . . and she's not happy about it.
With the new addition to the family, no one pays much attention to Frances anymore. At least that's the way it seems to her. So Frances decides to run away. Not too far, though-just far enough so she can hear how much she'll be missed, even by baby Gloria!
Babies love to look at faces - looking at and learning the different types of faces and their expressions forms the cornerstone for the development of later social skills.
Congratulations! You now have a baby in your family. Follow our top tips and you'll all be very happy. Don't lend your baby to a kangaroo, plant your baby in the garden, or take to school with you - and definitely don't send your baby to play with an elephant! DO cuddle your baby, read to your baby, sing to your baby and give your baby lots and lots of love.
Happy Families is a first look at the places where baby animals live with their parents. From birds in a nest, a joey in a pouch, a calf in a barn to a snail in its shell. The book takes everyday expressions and phrases that a baby hears over and over again, such as Let's go! Wait a minute, Oh dear and Never mind, and matches them with bright, cheerful and endearing animal characters that babies (and their parents) will identify with. Sturdy little tabs along the top and down the side will help baby find their favourite page and encourage interactivity. The illustrations by Goolygooly, a South Korean illustrator, are colourful, contemporary and expressive. Also available in this series: BEST FRIENDS.
The New York Times praised this best-selling picture book as "adorable, original, well-illustrated and fabulous." In this first book in the How-To Series (which includesHow To Get Married and How to Get a Job), the know-it-all big sister narrator tells it like it is: When you're a baby you don't read books. You eat them. You don't know how old you are, or even if you're a boy or a girl. And you have to keep a special plug in your mouth to stop your scream from coming out. But one day, you won't be little anymore, and then you'll be taller and smarter, and actually quite clever. Like the narrator. And you'll be able to share memories of what it was like when you were little with your incredible Big Sister.
