Baby CakesOne day the words, “Baby Cakes, Baby Cakes, I love you” just popped into my mind and the rest of the poem  quickly followed. I envisioned a book that parents could sing to their babies throughout the day, a book that wouldn’t just be read but would shared with baby and performed. Parents tell me that’s just what it has become, and I’m most proud that it’s one of my agent’s little nephew’s favorite.
