Foodie Babies Wear Bibs

Ladies and Gentleman The Little Pumpkin Book has been dethroned. I think we read that particular book two million times to my sister when she was a baby. I can still recite it to this day. Unfortunately, all reigns must come to an end and Foodie Babies Wear Bibs is by far the most adorable children’s board book I’ve ever seen. The illustrations are whimsical, and engaging while the text is straightforward — as it should be. Flipping through the pages I’m absolutely enamored with Nathalie Dion’s depictions of roly poly babies playing with their food in all manner of locations. My favorite page is simply captioned “Foodie babies say cheese” and is accompanied by happy kiddies hamming it up for the camera while sampling platters of gouda, cheddar, and brie. Those are definitely my kind of babies!

Foodie Babies Wear Bibs is part of the Urban Babies series of Children’s Books which was created by Michelle Sinclair Colman and is published by Tricycle Press (an imprint of Ten Speed). Other titles available include: Urban Babies Wear Black, Beach Babies Wear Shades, and Eco Babies Wear Green. Obviously any of these selections would be the perfect gift for the mommies-to-be in your life. Hopefully they aren’t due for a few more months though. Foodie Babies Wear Bibs has a “delivery date” of October 2008. Fortunately, unlike actual babies, this is available for pre-order.

so cute!!!

now in OUR house, Danny won’t wear a bib… and I wouldn’t exactly call him a foodie. while he MIGHT have a taste for gorgonzola, manzilla olives, pancetta, goat cheese and other ‘interesting foods’…. he loses his ranking by eating everything ELSE under the sun with equal gusto.

Maybe if they make a book called “garbage disposals don’t wear bibs” ???

Lol
We also read the perfect pizza book a billion times
“We’re making a pizza
it isn’t a chore
it’s going to be perfect,
like it came from the store”
Haha

LOL @ Carrie’s garbage disposal kid. Yeah, I know what that’s like.

That book is beyond darling! It’s on my possible-baby-gifts list now!

Those books are so cute! I haven’t seen that one, but I got my little niece the Urban Babies Wear Black and Country Babies Wear Plaid.
