What a world we would live in if we taught our children how NICE they are from the very start!

You’re So Nice, Baby is a unique board book that teaches tots to use their body through positive affirmations. It is never too early to teach little ones the power that they hold. All babies and toddlers will test us, the boundaries, and their own capabilities; this book guides them in the right direction. 

Look at those hands baby,

Ready to help and hold

You have NICE hands baby,

Hands that do as they’re told! 

Your baby will learn about his or her body parts and their functions through sing-song rhythm and rhyme. Molly Dresner uses encouraging language and repetition to reinforce these big life lessons in a sweet and simple package that everyone will love! 

Valentina Jaskina always wanted to be an artist. As a child, Valentina drew "masterpieces" on the walls of her parent’ s house. She always wanted to illustrate books or draw cartoons. She studied at the Children's Art School, and then studied classical drawing, painting and graphic design at Novosibirsk Art College. She draws inspiration from the world of children and teens, and prefers to use a mixed technique, including a blend of ink or pencil plus digital graphics. Valentina resides in Russia.

"Molly Dresner has done it again. Her clear and vivid look at the moments that matter to our youngest little people are all clear and helpful. What a gift to both parents and their lucky little ones!"
-Adele Faber, bestselling author of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk

“What a great way to instill a beautiful message into the heart of a child.” 
- Moms on Call cofounders Laura Hunter and Jennifer Walker
