Praise for Reach
“Verdick and Lisovskis home in on an early developmental milestone—the use of hands to reach, grasp, and explore . . . Tips for adults offer useful suggestions for interacting with babies . . . and encouraging motor skills.”—Publishers Weekly

“The photos are bright-eyed and buoyant . . . Both books provide easily digestible tips for parents and caregivers on healthy eating and ways to encourage reaching, grabbing, and interaction. This and its companion are pleasant additions to the Happy Healthy Baby series.”—Kirkus Reviews

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

“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
