B Is for Baby

By Atinuke
Illustrated by Angela Brooksbank

B is for Baby. B is for Brother. B is for going to see Baba!

Baby’s brother is getting ready to take a basket of bananas all the way to Baba’s bungalow in the next village. He will have to go along the bumpy road, past the baobab trees, birds and butterflies, and all the way over the bridge. What he doesn’t realize is that his cute, very curious baby sister is secretly coming along for the amazing bicycle ride, too! From the creators of Baby Goes to Market comes a beautiful, bright first book of words, perfect for pre-schoolers learning their ABC! Children will love sounding out the words in this playful, adventurous and vibrantly-illustrated story set in West Africa.

  • Both Atinuke and Angela Brooksbank grew up in West Africa, and this is an authentic story with a strong sense of place.
  • B is for Baby has won a Parents' Choice Silver Award in the US.
  • Look out for Catch that Chicken! – another funny, warm story from the same author/illustrator pairing.
