" 5 STARS plus a Cuteness Alert!!! Oh, my goodness! I love this happy little book for many reasons, and so will you! Here’s why… The ILLUSTRATIONS: So colorful, fun and appealing! They’re done just the way little children like them… cartoon (realistic) people! The main character, Baby Isaiah, is EVERYTHING a kid wants a baby to be! He’s cute, and he’s funny.

"She has made counting fun and simple through the daily tasks one does. The characters are relatable and adorable. The family of three children Isaiah, Iry and Nyia with their mother are just like any family with precocious children. They are energetic, vivacious and full of vigor. " Sigy George - Reedsy.com
