Author(s): Jane Blatt
A joyful celebration of the physical book in all its glory! For the very young, books can be anything from a chair, a tower, to a hat but the best thing they can be - is a book - and it's never too soon to share a good book with your little ones. The simple text, written by debut author Jane Blatt is brought to life by Sarah Massini's delightful and nostalgic illustrations of babies and toddlers discovering the new, magical world of books.
Jane Blatt, mother of 2 grown-up children and spouse to an American scientist, lives and works in Glasgow. She is an experienced teacher of young children and an accomplished violinist. Working with the Nosy Crow Team 'has been great fun' and she hopes that this foray into the commercial world will not be her last! Jane believes that keeping real books alive through the play and learning of young children is vital to the continuance of the whole genre as well as being a basis for the later skills of reading and writing.
