Trivia to Know About This Book

  • This and its companion book, BABY ANIMALS TAKE A BATH, are your first board books. Did you find them easier than writing a picture book?

    I found writing these board books just as challenging as a picture book, but in a different way. Any book that has just a few words is demanding as there is no place for a word to hide among hundreds of others on a page. Each word must be the perfect word.
