Mikmaw linguist Bernie Francis has taken the original words celebrating the birth of a baby and the love shown by the welcoming parents and created a valuable board book especially Mi'kmaq families and preschoolers.Weska'qelmut Apje'juanu is the Mi'kmaq language translation of Kisses Kisses Baby-O! Kisses Kisses Baby-O! is a story for newborns told from the point of view of a parent or caregiver, but with high interaction with baby's world and tuned to events in baby's day.
Beloved Canadian children's author Sheree Fitch delivers what she's famous for: fun, intelligent, participatory text that is a joy to read. Using rhythm and onomatopoeia, Sheree's bubbly text begins with baby waking, and follows through eating, bathing, playing, and finally sleeping.
Repetition, rhythm and active verbs create a lively story that can be read again and again. Heart-warming illustrations by HildaRose combine realism and a whimsical, artistic style, while paying close attention to the needs of newborn readers, including such elements as: stimulating visuals, patterns, baby faces, cultural diversity and interaction with others. And babies will drool over the small, easy to hold format!
Translated from English by Bernie Francis.
