Baby, Be of Use

Lisa Brown reads an essay about her Baby, Be of Use instructional board book series for children. (Running Time: 6:19)

About Baby, Be of Use
Too many of us allow our infant sons and daughters to lay about idly: napping, drinking milk and whatnot. Why not put them to work? Baby, Be of Use is a series of instructional board books aimed at teaching your precious little angels to be useful, at long last. Tots will be entranced by the shapes and colors, all the while learning how to mix a variety of basic cocktails (Baby Mix Me a Drink) and concoct a simple breakfast (Baby Make Me Breakfast. Baby, Be of Use is an essential purchase for expectant parents, harried mothers, hungry fathers and overly involved grandparents.
