A scrumptious board book, filled with sweet terms of endearment. This bite-sized board book is an ode to all the names we call our children: cutie pie, sweet pea, peanut, pumpkin. With a candy-colored palette, irresistible art, and embossed pages for a nice tactile effect, this is the perfect baby shower gift or a nice little treat for your very own sweetheart!
Voted one of This Year’s Books Worth a Look by Atlanta Parent Magazine.
"Let's just say it's absolutely delicious and I want to eat it up in a major way." - Cool Mom Picks
"Embossed for a satisfying tactile effect, Wan's digitized characters, reminiscent of Japanese animation, have chocolate-brown eyes and rosy cheeks. "Baby, I could just eat you up!" concludes the adoring final spread. All that's left of the cupcake is its smiling, green liner. Presumably, no actual cupcakes were harmed in the making of this crowd-pleasing plum." – Publishers Weekly
"These are vivid, densely-colored illustrations, many with pleasing patterns for the wee eye, and as you can see, there’s a lot of pizzazz here. These are short books with embossed illustrations, which baby will want to reach out and touch." – Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast
"Each page is a bright and bold spread with a whimsical foodie character and a relevant term of endearment. It’s quick, quirky, and yummy." – Design of the Picture Book
"The art is bold and the color choices are reminiscent of actual bakery goods. This is a sturdy, board book that totz and babies will ask for again and again." – readertotz
