What It Is

Txtng Mama Txtng Baby by Esther Hershenhorn is a funny board book that has a back-and-forth dialogue between a baby and mommy using text symbols and shorthand. The pages are full of bright and vibrant imagery that is simple yet effective for a young baby to focus on. The phrases and text symbols use classic phrases to communicate, such as "I love you", "hello baby", "peek-a-boo", and "night night".

Why It’s Fun

This book would make a funny gift for parents who love texting. Babies and toddlers probably won't understand any of the text-speak within the book, but tech-savvy moms and dads will appreciate it.

Who It’s For

This book is not age-graded, but we think it's appropriate for kids birth and up, especially because reading to kids from an early age reinforces learning.

What To Be Aware Of

This book is also available in an e-book format.
