Astro Baby is for newborns who like to gaze at bright colors, toddlers who are fascinated by images of babies and animals, older children able to comprehend the concepts put forth by astrology, and grown-ups who are obsessed with their star signs.
Ridiculously charming, Astro Baby depicts a world where everyone has special things that make them happy and unique. Actual astrological references elevate the picture book from fantasy.
Educational takeaways abound: Each Astro Baby will be painted in the colors special to it, each rhyme will be preceded by its number in the zodiac, what planet and element rules it, and its animal symbol.
Created by superstar scribe Michelle Tea and illustrated with psychedelic abandon by Mike Perry (animator for Broad City), Astro Baby is a clever spin on astrology that will captivate young and old alike.
