100 Sweet Nothings for Baby is a feel good book for babies and the big people who birthed them. This lovely little book is the perfect gift for new parents, or for a three- (or six-month) birthday, or for christening or naming ceremonies.

As Mina Parker writes in the introduction, "Every moment of your life has led you to this one - holding a beautiful, sacred, burping little wonder called your baby. Whether this is your first time or your fifth, new parenthood delivers a sweet and exciting jolt of electricity into your life. So welcome to the sweet life of parenthood, and from my family to yours, here is a book to celebrate and support what you do best - loving your baby in every way, from top to bottom."

100 Sweet Nothings for Baby is an out-of-the-box, not-your-garden-variety baby present. Wise quotes are sprinkled throughout. Consider Carl Sandberg's "A baby is God's opinion that life should go on."Along with little rhymes to read out loud and comfort both of you, "Trilling r's, rides in cars, every balm to soothe and calm." Along with little comments on the daily wonder of babies, "Cuddling close the one you adore and hearing the music of one baby snore."
