Want to learn information on how to best interact with and relate to your new little one? D.A. Batrowny brings you a wonderfully illustrated tale that does just that (without turning into a factual overload that knocks you upside the head). There are two sections in the first book in The Artt Of Learning series, Welcome Smart Artt. Section one is a cute story about the hospital staff looking for Smart Artt and discovering his inventions; section two is a “book” Smart Artt wrote for his parents, detailing in rhyme how to best care for him. Section one is geared toward sharing with your child; section two gives advice to you as the parent (though older children could benefit from reading this part as well… really, any caregiver to your child could find this useful).
I thought section one of D.A. Batrowny’s book, Welcome Smart Artt, was amusing and fun. It is something I could read to my two-year-old (we could enjoy looking for and finding Smart Artt together). That being said, my favorite part was section two. I enjoy rhyming schemes and the sentences rhymed beautifully with each other. And best of all, they conveyed useful information on ways to help and interact with my seven-week-old baby. I appreciate learning things and cannot express enough how much I enjoyed the style of Welcome Smart Artt. Finally! An easy and interesting way to learn about your child’s needs. Thank you D.A. Batrowny! I hope to read more of your work in the future. People out there: this book would make a good baby shower gift!
