Chunky Monkey. Pumpkin. Little Peanut. Are these the latest flavors of gourmet ice cream? Actually, they describe something much sweeter. They are all cute nicknames you might choose for the new baby in your life. But how do you know which one is just right? Little Snuggler will help you decide.
Before a baby is born, parents spend an inordinate amount of time choosing just the right name--not too old-fashioned, not too trendy, not too common, not too made up. But soon after the child is named, it turns out they needn't have bothered to go to all the trouble. In no time at all, they'll be calling the baby Princess or Sweetie or Little Stinker far more often than her real name.
Little Snuggler celebrates all the sweet (and sometimes cheeky) nicknames that parents, grandparents, friends, and caregivers bestow on the babies in their lives. Each nickname features a charming illustration and a description of its corresponding traits.
Do you know a Little Tiger (aka Smalitus Growlus)? This baby is known to be swift, playful, and adventurous. Responds well to tickles, hugs, and general roughhousing. Or perhaps you have a Wiggle Worm (aka Undulus Squirmius) who, when confronted with a diaper, moves like a wrestler. And we all know a Binky Boy or Girl.
Little Snuggler makes a delightful gift for new parents, whatever their baby's personality.
