Board Books for Cool Babies

Rocker Babies Wear Jeans by Michelle Sinclair Colman, illustrations by Nathalie Dion

Part of the Urban Babies Wear Black series, I consider this one of the best of that group.  Perfect for hip parents who want to raise a little rocker, this book is filled with humor and puns.  Favorite lines are “Rocker babies shake their booties” and “Rocker babies do jam sessions.”  Both showing babies doing very normal baby things.  A winning entry in a popular series.

Yum Yum, Baby Bundt by Jamie Harper

This board book opens with a charming recipe for lunch that combines 1 hungry baby, 1 washable bib, 1 highchair, toys, and then the lunch itself and all of the plates, sippy cup, etc.  The book then moves into more of a narrative story where a helpful big sister gets her younger sibling through a meal of pasta, veggies, fruit and cookies.  The story is told briefly with the humor added through the illustrations.  A recipe for a great read, this book is a gem because of the positive relationship it shows between siblings.
