Good Morning Baby Girl is an easy-to-read discovery book with simple, but colorful pictures. Using this story written in rhyme by D.A. Batrowny, parents can start each day reading with their baby, and then they can act it out. “What sound does the bee make? How does a bird fly? Let’s see you hop like a bunny,” are all ways that parents or caregivers can read and play with young children. But, reading this book is just the start. Parents can ask questions, teach colors, body parts, and make noises that represent the animals in the book. Good Morning Baby Girl is a building block to good communication skills and developing literacy fundamentals. How about encouraging play with questions, such as “What color is the sun? Do you see anything else in this room that is yellow?” after reading page 6.

Good Morning Baby Girl is good for reading for babies and parents, but also first-time readers because the sentences are short and easy to read. The illustrations are bold and beautiful and effectively demonstrate the words. The use of bright colors should help maintain a child’s focus. The adorable, smiling baby is cute. The illustrations help young children learn to speak and read by identifying with the picture. D.A. Batrowny has given us a beautiful, rhyming story that uses rhythm, repetition, bold colorful images, and bonding to develop a child’s communication skills. It is a great way to start a new day! I can imagine a childcare facility reading this book to start each day and then encouraging toddlers to act it out. The bold, simple illustrations and short, rhyming sentences are a winning combination.
