“Hi, sweet baby. You are growing a little bit more every day! How big is baby today? Let’s find out.”

The opening section of this lift the flap book shows a toddler sitting with Lady and Tramp, cartoon figures from one of Disney’s feature films. Then the page opens up to show the child is “bigger than a puppy’s nose” and “bigger than your tiny toes”.

On each successive two page spread the question is repeated, “How big is Baby today?” With the help of a number of other Disney characters you’ll see just how much baby has grown.

This blend of actual photos of children with cartoon characters emphasizes that the youngster is growing each day. As the child grows so do his or her parents love. “Our love for you is so big! It’s bigger than the whole, wide world.”
