My first purchase of Baby Cakes was for my grandson in July 2008. This current purchase is a gift for my nephew's new son. We started reading this to my grandson when he was only a few months old and now he is "reading" it to us. It's a great, sturdy board book. He loves the rhythym of the book and the pictures - we act out the story, playing peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake and we thoroughly enjoy it so I wanted to share that with my nephew's new baby. It was an instant classic with us.
