Baby Henry is under a lot of pressure to say his first word. His parents are all excited about what it will be, but Henry doesn’t see what the big deal is. He says things all the time, like “bbbghsh” and “boop,” but no one seems to understand what he means. So Henry decides that he better start searching for a word. Luckily, just when he needs it most, his first word comes looking for him.
“Let this be the first first-word book to pull from the shelf.”
