Full Description

This delightful memory book helps new parents keep a complete record of the events--both thrilling and mundane--that take place in the life of their new little one. From baby shower to first birthday, from first full night's sleep to first smile, this classic fifty-six-page baby book includes pockets for special mementos, plenty of room for notes and photographs, charts to track growth and vaccinations, and pages to record family history. With generous excerpts from Winnie-the-Pooh and The House At Pooh Corner, illustrated in full color with Ernest H. Shepard's whimsical original drawings, this is the perfect keepsake for new parents to create together and share for years to come.
