   Great gift
This was a gift for my mother for Mother's Day, as I expect. She loved it, and I am sure that she will get a lot of use out of it. She enjoyed the mix of stories, games and recipes.

   Adorable!!
I bought this beautiful book for my neighbor next door. Today, her great-grand daughter delivered her baby girl. I wrapped the book in all pink and pink ribbons and took it to the next door. She was so surprised and loved the book absolutely, especially the illustrations. This is her first great grandchild and will be such a loving and caring great grandma - she will be known as GiGi for Great Grandma!

   A great gift for a Grandmother who babysits alot!
This book can be used as entertainment as well as a learning tool for a youngster to interact with their grandmother and their grandmother can be sure that in the future she will be more skilled with his chatter. Reading to a child is always a plus and it even offers some recipes so that you can bake together as well. And then eat those cookies together and enjoy them!
