When did your baby first smile? Or sit, or walk? Little achievements like these, if not recorded at the time, will soon be just vague memories. This book provides a perfect way to keep the fleeting details in one place, together with important information such as vaccinations and illnesses. Illustrated with Kate Greenaway's beautiful vignettes of early childhood, and sprinkled with sparkly stars, the book has space for photographs, mementos, and personal notes. It will build up into a valuable record of your child's growth and development, from birth right through to the first term at school. This is the third edition and 15th impression of a book that has taken the test of time and passed cum laude. The new edition features a fresh cover designed by Ting-Chung Cheng, winner of the Kate Greenaway Design Award 2010. The new look was the unanimous choice of a distinguished panel of judges, including three artists, who convened in Kate Greenaway's former studio in Hampstead.

Author Biography

Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) was one of the first illustrators to have her work published in color. She had a bold watercolor style and her uncanny ability to capture the innocence of childhood won her instant popularity. Her powerful influence can be traced in the work of Beatrix Potter and every year her name is remembered in the award of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
