Sam's First Word, Hardback Book

Sam's First Word Hardback

Illustrated by Holly Hatam



Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada meets Everybody Poops in this silly story about a baby girl whose first word--POOP!--isn't getting the message across. Everyone in Sam's family wants her to say their name for her first word.

To convince her, Mama sings, Papa tells a story, and Nana draws.

Even their neighbor Mr. Theotopolous gets in on the action by performing an epic poem.

Sam definitely has something to say, something urgent, but how can she make her family stop thinking about themselves and listen?

When all else fails, she may have to do something drastic to make them hear her first word--POOP!--loud and clear. This sweetly silly story is read-aloud fun for the whole family, from parents who may end up laughing at themselves to kids who will cheer Sam on to her triumphant finale.
