PRAISE FOR THIS IS OUR BABY, BORN TODAY (written by Varsha Bajaj)

“A newborn elephant is celebrated in a timeless manner by its herd and other animals in a wild Indian environment…. Rich vocabulary…sure to delight readers and young listeners.”—SLJ

PRAISE FOR SIMONA MULAZZANI’S ILLUSTRATIONS IN ROCK-A-BYE ROMP (by Linda Ashman)
* “Gently funny and eminently reassuring…. Mulazzini’s mixed-media paintings play right into the safe, secure mood. Her softly flowing shapes, subdued palette, and quirky details create the sense of a dreamscape.”—PW STAR
“Soothing, dreamy art.”—SLJ
“Mulazzani’s mixed-media art indulges in delightful decorative details…. A fine addition to the nursery bookshelf for baby and all.”—Kirkus
“Ashman and Mulazzani have breathed twenty-first-century life into this well-known lullaby. The bustling mixed-media illustrations give a modern feel…. While there is plenty of action here, the soft pastels and blue-green color scheme give the story a sleepy feel. Touches of patterned paper add visual spark.”—Booklist
