100 First Words for Little Californians
Cruising down the 5, rocking our Levis, and sipping a Cactus Cooler, we’re Californians, fosho. But, like, how do we pass these big California vibes on to baby?
Eureka! Introducing 100 First Words for Little Californians, a state primer for kids learning their first words! Forget apple and dog. Little Californians are ready to move from ABC to PCH and other California-specific words like the Industry, traffic, and animal style (if you know, you know). Packed with hilarious illustrations and 100 words every Cali-born baby should know (before any others, of course), 100 First Words for Little Californians is the perfect board book for families who call California home.
