Baby-Toddler—Adorable volumes about a busy baby who finds time to make new friends, play, fix sidewalk cracks, and drive a fire truck. In these interactive entries, the gender-neutral main character's face can be spun to change facial expressions via an ingenious use of die-cuts. In Friends, Busy Baby can be found in a nursery school-like environment playing music, painting, and cleaning up with his new mates—all anthropomorphized young animals. Readers will delight in making Busy Baby's frown go right side up with a flick of a finger. In Trucks, the series star rushes to put out a fire, loads up recycled garbage, and puts an end to a heat wave with much-needed ice cream. Colorful illustrations on white backgrounds make these titles extra fun.
