Two new titles just released




Two new titles from the Ladybird Happy Babies Series are out today! Bathtime and Teatime. :o)

While I was working on them I learned "teatime" in the UK also refers to mealtime. I always thought it was the actual teatime at 5pm, you know, the one with delicious cookies and biscuits, hee! Anyway, this goes to show you that we learn something new everyday.

Teatime Baby and Bathtime Baby are cute little peep-through board books that show babies in their daily routines, bedtime, playtime, teatime and bathtime. The rhyming text describes what is happening in each picture, and baby looks through the hole in the page to find out what the baby in the book is doing next.

All the books in the series feature a cute teddy that gives clues to the baby reading the book. They also have a ladybird hidden somewhere on each page so baby has to play and find it.

The books are available in the UK but I recently found this site that ships around the world and the shipping is free. How great is that?

I love working on these little books. Pure joy! :o)

Thanks so much Maria!! Hee, hee.. my oldest (now 14) used to have a frog towel when he was a baby. Those are the mommy things that get imprinted on us forever I guess. :o)

Ah so cute!! These are on my wish list. My son just turned 1 and I'm growing his book collection.

We do love our afternoon tea here (I bake all the goodies for a burlesque & cabaret supper club every Saturday). Afternoon tea takes place around 3pm. Tea time is meal time around 6pm for those who are from the north of England like me followed by a late supper around 10pm if I get peckish, which is almost always! :)

Thanks so much Mrs Creative! Tea time around 3 sounds so fun.. specially the baked goodies. ;o)
