Author Christine McCormick spreads the sunshine to young readers as she brings them to coo, laugh, and crawl with adorable Baby Casey in her charming picture book, Baby Casey's Grand Adventure. Wonderfully illustrated by thirteen-year-old Holly Cohick, this charming picture book follows a curious little tyke who just can’t get enough of learning new things and having new toys to play with.

Baby Casey lives with his parents and a playful dog named Rags in a big mansion on a hill. Everything in the house seemed to move like clockwork – orderly and on time. In the morning they would eat breakfast; later, they would go outdoors and would set Baby Casey down his little spot until his parents finish gardening.

One day, tired of his daily routine, Baby Casey decides to wander around the house alone—for the first time. He was just at the age of starting to walk, but he still did a lot of crawling around. With his trusty dog Rags, he attempts to embark on a delightful exploration around the house. But, can he manage to explore without getting hurt?

Sharing valuable life lessons to young readers, Baby Casey's Grand Adventure is also the perfect bonding tool for parents and their children. This book will be featured in the 2010 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Washington, DC, on June 25-28, 2010. For more information, log on to
