Synopsis

Readers, come away! Join in as baby sips tea with a bird in a tip-top tree, floats with a cat in a milk-white sea, and dances with a fish to a deep-sea band, only to return at the end of the day to Mama’s waiting arms. With enchanting, vibrant illustrations and lyrical verse that begs to be read aloud, this book is a love song from all of us who delight in our babies—and want to give them the world.
