Busy Baby, Friends and Trucks: Sara Gillingham

Readertotz will stay busy with Sara Gillingham's Busy Baby series. Friends and Trucks allow your little reader to explore different situations and consider ensuing feelings. A disk, which turns in the board books' middle hole, lets you say Busy Baby is happy or sad.

In Trucks, can he drive the firetruck faster? Can he load the recycling or pass out scoops of ice cream? In Friends, Busy Baby is asked to share, help clean up, and wave good-bye. The reader considers if the baby is happy or sad in each situation.

With subdued color, graphic shapes, and a print texture in the illustrations, Busy Baby will keep little fingers engaged and minds considering. How does Busy Baby feel? How would you feel?
