A board book that celebrates two of our favorite things: bookstores and babies!
"Bookstore Babies shows readers 0–4 the joys bookstores hold—including, of course, cats. Babies are depicted enjoying belly time and story time, practicing shapes and eating snacks and a page of text (with an illustration of a slightly stressed cat being chased by a happy toddler) points out that 'playing with the bookstore cat is always a treat!' " —Siân Gaetano, children's and YA editor, Shelf Awareness
"This board book is full of illustrations by Violet Lemay of babies reading, being read to and playing in a bookstore. There is a list of activities and tips at the end of the book for new parents to engage little ones in words and play for even more learning (like 'find the hidden numbers' and 'point to the flags')." —Chicago Parent
"A lively love note to bricks-and-mortar bookstores." —Publishers Weekly
