'Who's that coming through the morning fog? A San Francisco baby!'

This board book combines illustrations of San Francisco with a new baby who lives in the California coastal city. You'll find infants being pushed in their strollers along the city's scenic waterfront with the Bay Bridge in the background; riding the quaint cable cars; and visiting Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf.

Babies love to play so you'll see a toddler decked out in a Giants' baseball uniform, playing at the beach or in one of the city's many playgrounds that reflect different ethnic neighborhoods.

At the back of the book you'll find suggestions for questions you can ask your child as you page through this book. For example, 'Can you point to the house where the baby is still awake?'

If you know anyone with a new child who lives either in San Francisco or close to the Bay Area this would be an ideal gift. Books like this with specific regional themes are becoming more popular and are fun to share with young children.
