Board book: Baby Love

Baby Love. Sandra Magsamen. 2019. Scholastic. 10 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: What did the mommy bunny say to her baby bunny? You're some bunny special.

Premise/plot: Baby Love is a board book with a mirror.

My thoughts: The text of this one is formulaic and predictable. A mommy animal is professing her love to her baby on every single page. The animals are all ones you'd expect to find in a board book: bunny, elephant, cat, and dog. The last spread, of course, is not an animal at all. It features the mirror. (Babies do love mirrors.)
