The author-illustrator of The Rabbit Listened and Good Dog captures the incredible bond between parent and child with this exuberant picture book about a carefree young ape who goes barreling through the jungle…and the worried mom who must chase after. As her baby goes on a mad dash through the jungle, it’s up to mama to make sure the curious little orangutan doesn’t get into too much trouble—like dancing on a bear, bouncing on an elephant, or even pulling on a leopard’s tail. But when you have a wild baby, life is full of surprises! With a simple, playful rhyme, this adorable and humorous story illustrates the oftentimes chaotic but always loving bond between parent and child. This board book edition is perfect for little hands. Wild Baby is sure to capture the heart of fans of Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Smriti Prasadam-Halls, and anyone with a wild child of their own!
