Sparking chatter and vocabulary, HEY, BABY, LOOK is a beautifully designed board book that offers a simple, thoughtful narrative to provide visual stimulation and talking points for babies and toddlers.
It’s difficult to say which is more enticing and thought-provoking – the crisp, clear and colorful illustrations or the simple abab rhyming pattern of the narrative that introduces color, things, animals and offers a springboard for talking points with toddlers and youngsters about concepts such as our sense, movement and nature.
HEY, BABY, LOOK! is aesthetically pleasing. Beside the usual round edges and the high quality stiffness, the layout is equally well thought out.

The range of images and activities that are encouraged, such as pointing to, singing and counting, make this book appealing to a wide range of ages – from babies to toddlers and even preschoolers. The variety of images will also encourage children and parents alike to read and re-read this book to fully absorb all the conversation and information it can offer to young, curious minds.
