By Leslie Patricelli

“Children will easily recognize the deep bond between the child and the beloved object . . . this offers a warm, comforting view of a toddler’s daily world.” — Booklist

Anyone who's spent time with a toddler knows that few crises compare with the (even temporary) loss of a favorite blankie. Here, in her humorous, bold graphic style, Leslie Patricelli plays up this scenario, surely near and dear to every toddler's heart. It's an affectionate ode to that special object that comforts many a child through the dramas of each day. Available in a dual Spanish-English edition!

  • Pairs up perfectly with Leslie Patricelli's other bilingual board books.
  • Starring everyone's favorite bald baby!
  • A sweet ode to that special cozy friend.
