Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

What could be more wished for than a new baby? With homespun warmth, Belinda Downes stitches together the moments and mealtimes, playthings and people that make up a baby’s world. From the personalized bookplate at the beginning to the convenient envelope for "Baby’s Special Things" at the end, BABY DAYS is a charming patchwork of universal verses and games, familiar faces, objects, and places that babies and parents will want to visit again and again.
