You are my cupcake, my cutie pie, and my mushy little sweet pea

You Are My Cupcake kids' board bookAfter seeing Joyce Wan’s board book, We Belong Together I am so in love with her. So of course I had to check out You Are My Cupcake, in the same series. Let’s just say it’s absolutely delicious and I want to eat it up in a major way.

Each page pops with vibrant colors and sweet illustrations that are
textured, giving babies a sensory experience. All of the terms of
endearment are covered here–starting with “cupcake”–but with a twist.
We call our babe a “sweet pea,” but in Wan’s world, she’s a “mushy
little sweet pea.” Your cutie pie is “oven baked” and your little peanut
is “honey roasted.” I’m getting hungry just writing this post.

I tested the book out on a group of parents and their babies and
every single one (adult and child) wanted to take a bite out of the
book. Good thing it’s a board book so it can hold up to some serious drool. –Eva
You Are My Cupcake is available at your local independent bookstore, or our affiliate,  Amazon.

    We received this book as a gift for our two year old, and I assumed it would quickly get overlooked in favor of “big kid” books. But she surprised us by fixating on it and it’s become a household favorite. Now I recite it to her nearly every night at bedtime!
