A Gift for Baby

by Jan Hunt (Author), Sunny Rosanbalm (Illustrator)

Reading Level: Ages 0 – 4

Hardcover:
7″ x 7″, 32 pages

Language: Dual Language English/Spanish Edition

My new picture book, A Gift for Baby, celebrates the many joys of attachment parenting. It was written to inspire parents to look at life through their baby’s eyes, and to meet their needs with love and compassion. Artist Sunny Rosanbalm created the beautiful illustrations, which perfectly suit the story’s message.

The book provides support and reassurance for attachment parents, and their children, in a world that so often ignores the critical needs of babies and young children. Aside from the message, it is also an intriguing picture book for children. The story presents a mystery (What is in the big box?) and has a surprise ending. As one mother wrote, her daughter “keeps bringing A Gift for Baby to us, wanting to read it with us. At other times she picks it up on her own and enjoys looking through it with great interest.”

The book includes Spanish and English text on each page, which is helpful for bilingual families and for those who are learning a second language.

The book has been approved by La Leche League and Attachment Parenting International.
