Cinnamon Baby by Nicola Winstanley, illustrated by Janice Nadeau
This story is lengthy for a storytime with toddlers or babies and has a slow and peaceful style that will leave most preschoolers wiggly. But, it’s perfect for a bedtime story for a sleepy child or for one who enjoys the sound of beautiful words. The illustrations swirl and dance along with the poetic language, celebrating families and baking, babies and love.
Verdict: Not a required purchase, but definitely recommended if you have parents and children who like sweet stories that will be favorites to remember as they grow older. A lovely book for a special child and their parents.
