 BAH! SAID THE BABY written & illustrated by Jennifer Plecas

"...endearing...Parents and children with younger siblings are sure to relate to the pitfalls and joys of communicating with

pre-verbal babies."

School Library Journal


"Add this charmer to the lineup for a baby-themed storytime, or share it with the older sibs of an almost-verbal little one."

―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books


"What is modeled so well in the story is that when Baby talks, the ones who love him listen and respond to his needs. It is through these types of exchanges and loving relationships that babies learn to talk." 

―Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy

“A whimsical approach to the life cycle of flies. Large, colorful illustrations immediately engage readers through dialogue bubbles and colorful cartoons . . . This book will be a lively read-aloud to introduce students to environmentalism or to generate conversation and new ideas.”

―School Library Journal


“Giggly, gross, and educational.”



“This zippy introduction will inspire and satisfy curiosity.”
