Description

"Brown sugar baby, dark eyes spark bright with glee...Pie of my eye, stay right here with me." This lyrical first book in the Brown Sugar Baby series is a celebration of the powerful love and protective, comforting instincts of a mother for her child. Its soothing rhythm and tender rhymes are highlighted by whimsical and charming illustrations that are perfect for storytime.

  • Relatable, lyrical story for parents and their little girls and boys to read together time and time again
  • Beautiful illustrations, featuring an African American family, will keep kids engaged throughout the story
  • Sturdy board book pages are easy to grasp, great for children practicing fine motor skills
  • Poetic rhythm and rhymes encourage language patterns and development amongst toddlers
  • Perfect for baby showers, birthday gifts, Mother's Day, and more!

At Cottage Door Press, we believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.


Reviews

Author Bio

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.

We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.

To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible. 


Kevin Lewis loves recognizing that bouncy, busy brown sugar baby spirit, especially when he sees it in the fans of his popular picture book favorites Chugga Chugga Choo-Choo, My Truck is Stuck!, and The Runaway Pumpkin. Kevin lives in a 200-year-old farmhouse in Newburgh, New York, with his husband, Phil, a dog named Kat, and two cats named Prim and Rue.


Jestenia Southerland loves stories that spark the imagination, and the potential of passing that feeling on to others is what drives her as an illustrator. When she's not drawing, she loves spending time with her two dogs, Kojack and Katia.
