Anne Geddes My First Year will be published in October 2014 with two new padded board books, Anne Geddes Lullaby and Good Night (ISBN: 9781402298233; October 7, 2014; $8.99 U.S.; Gift; Padded Board Book) and Anne Geddes This Little Baby (ISBN: 9781402298288; October 7, 2014; $8.99 U.S.; Gift; Padded Board Book). The fall releases are a continuation of the partnership between Anne Geddes and independent publisher Sourcebooks to create print and digital publishing products. These two padded board books make terrific gifts for ages 0 to at least 4. I read the book to 3 of my 4 children. The 2.5 month old benefited from hearing my voice and seeing the colorful images. My 2.5 year old LOVED the images of the real babies and my 4 year old enjoyed the sweet words on each page. Wonderfully loved additions to our at-home library.
Geddes continues to use her voice as a global advocate for children all around the world. Geddes will be contributing her support and imagery to the March of Dimes 2014 World Prematurity Day (November 17), which aims to share the best perinatal health in the hopes of improving birth outcomes around the world, specifically to help prevent premature births.
Geddes recently relocated her studio from Australia to New York and is scheduled to stream video of her first U.S. shoot via Creative Live in October 2014. For more information, visit www.annegeddes.com.
