About The Book

New Books for Newborns is where to start. With lilting lullaby text and lovely illustrations, the New Books for Newborns stories are the perfect first books for new parents to share with their little ones right from the start!

Start here. With so many decisions to be made when you have a baby, it can be difficult to figure out what’s right in the first year. But with this line of storybooks, you really just need to open the book and start reading. Designed as the very first books to start sharing with your baby, these just-right stories have soothing read-aloud texts that are perfect for reading together. So start here. Snuggle up. It’s story time!

In this sweet board book, a little seedling needs some rain, bright sunshine, and gentle hands to care for it, so that one day, it can spread its roots and grow into a mighty tree—just like the child that grows up beside it. A lovely book for parents to share about growing roots and branching out.
