More About This Title Let's Go, Baby-o!


When Baby-o wakes up there are games to play and lots to discover in the busy back garden, in this joyful board book for sharing words and conversation with children Let's Go, Baby-o! You and me! To the up, to the down and the turn around, to the wibble and the wobble, and the flip, flop hop. Then twist, twirl, whirrrl . . .
When sleep-time is over, a little boy and his cousin play action games, but in between they stop to look out the window. What do they see? Grandparents are digging in the garden, children are building a cubby house, the cat has her eye on the baby birds, and the dogs have their eyes on the cat! This is a fun-filled story for parents, grandparents, teachers, and childcare educators to share with babies and young children. This book shows that learning language and playing games go together, and will encourage the conversations between children and adults that are so important for children's development.
