Holiday books from PSS!/Penguin Young Readers

Special edition family gift book for new babies or one-year-old birthdays. In Confessions of a Milk Addict, the first-time dad/author records the wonders of life’s first year in a collection of pictures and rhymes. This unique journal captures the heart and humor of the most dramatic year of life for both baby and parent, a journey of discovery from spit up to first steps and everything in between. So relax, pour a tall glass of milk, and step inside. You may never look at babies the same again...
