Baby Steps by Peter McCarty

This is a beautifully illustrated album of the first year of little Suki's life. The pencil sketches and simple text are appealing to young children, who can relate their own growth to that of Suki. It's not a book that I use a lot in therapy, but is one that I've given many times as a gift. This is simply a beautiful and simple book and captures the important moments of baby's first year of life. When doing things like sitting up, napping under a blanket, or tentatively standing with some support, baby Suki is charming and her father has provided an amazing tribute to the first year of his daughter's life. I have found that toddlers love this as a read aloud book and get very excited when able to identify the "baby" in the pictures.
