A Name for Baby
Written and illustrated by Lizi Boyd
“A name is a sound that follows you around. I’m listening for one," says Mother Mouse.

One by one, the animals suggest names for baby that would personally honor themselves. Lyrical text filled with wordplay will charm soon-to-be parents and soon-to-be older siblings alike.
