The Boss Baby by Marla Frazee

Daughter’s age when read: 3 years old

This book would make the perfect gift for those new parents out there. It talks about all the things a new parent will go through as the baby calls “meetings”, aka middle of the night feedings, or has their parents on call constantly. It also illustrates the perks the boss baby has like 24/7 bottles delivered to them. It’s a hilarious book with wonderful illustrations although the humor is geared more towards parents than children.  Older children may enjoy this one more but I would definitely one you may want to check out as a baby shower gift.

There were nuances that my 3 year old did not understand and I think even a 4 year old may not get.  So she did not enjoy the book as much as I had hoped. She did not understand that the “meetings” are the baby waking up to cry and that the exersaucer was the baby’s “desk”.  So I would not suggest this for the younger kids.
