Praise for Play
“Active and bubbly . . . A welcome addition to parent-baby routines.”—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the series
“Best baby selfies.”—Parents

“Verdick and Lisovskis combine sweet-natured verse with photographs of babies giving and receiving affection. The close-up b&w photos are attention-grabbing, and the accompanying pastel cartoons add to the nursery rhyme vibe.”—Publishers Weekly

“It’s no secret that babies are obsessed with their own kind, and these pics deliver. The theme of each book is an action babies do, such as sleeping or eating.”—Monica Carnesi, children’s-materials specialist, Free Library of Philadelphia
