His Day follows a baby/toddler through a day from waking up, through nappies, eating, playing, bathtime and more. Her Day follows a little girl through the same day and the same activities. Every image is accompanied by simple text indicating the activity and/or time of day. Each is a sturdy board book, coloured in blue (for him) and pink (for her). Both babies are realistically and softly drawn in pencil and coloured with watercolour.
These sweet titles offer the simplicity and truth of Baby’s ideal day. Anyone who has spent time with babies will recognise the poses depicted, the activities observed and shared. Either would make an ideal present to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Recommended as a first book for baby. (Or for parents, aunts, uncles or grandparents!)
