Little ones love playing with their dolls! Celebrate that love with Baby-Boo, I Love You, and follow one imaginative little girl who adores playing mommy. And as she bathes, feeds, and frolics with her doll, she emulates a nurturing parent-child relationship, showing the universal joys of being cared for and cherished.
This picture book is perfect for all those little ones out there who have that special lovey whether it’s a doll or stuffed animal. They love, care for and nurture that sweet lovey and take it everywhere. The book explores this with a little girl and her special doll. I also think this might be a good picture book for a young toddler or early preschooler who is getting ready to become a big brother or sister soon. Pair Baby Boo, I Love You with a special lovey and you’ve got a great I’m a big brother/sister gift. For us we took our oldest to Build A Bear she picked out her special animal after we had her little sister (who isn’t so little anymore. Where do the years go). The author has come up with a great enrichment activity guide with some fun simple stuff to do. This would be a fun bonding time for the older sibling when sometimes they feel a little left out. Overall I really thought this picture book was sweet and will remember it when I have a baby shower or new baby gift to give.
