Baby Unplugged: Pets

“Pets need water, food, fresh air. Most of all, pets need love to share!”

A celebration of pets—real pets, not the virtual kind—and all the fun and love they offer.

From the Baby Unplugged™ series, winner of a Mom's Choice Awards Gold Medal and Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year! Celebrating icons of childhood, rooted in how developing brains work. Kids need and learn best through real experiences, real people, and exploring the real world. Technology can wait. Unplug, tune in, and have fun!



“Simple isn’t always easy to pull off; to stand the test of time, a board book needs to have a straightforward message, wide appeal, and entertaining pictures that are fun to look at over and over again. Luckily, John Hutton and Andrea Kang’s board book Pets fits the bill, with easy-to-follow illustrations, rhyming text, and a subject dear to most children’s hearts: pets…” - Foreword Reviews
Pets provides expressions of differences... There are simple, happy visuals and interesting wording to build attention and intonation.” 
- Dr. Joe Leanza, MD, MHS, FAAP, Springdale-Mason Pediatrics Associates
