Snuggle the Baby is an interactive velty board book that plays like a doll and reads as a gentle how to care for baby manual for kids. From swaddling to shushing, Gillingham has incorporated real tactics for newborn-care, giving the text an authenticity and purpose. Interactivities include tickling, feeding, changing swaddling, rocking and tucking in the baby, all accompanied by tender, instructive narration. Perfect for soon-to-be older siblings or doll-crazy toddlers, this book encourages children to read while they play and practice empathy and care.
