Guess the Baby - Simon French

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

After Sam's baby brother visits Mr. Judd's class, all the children bring their baby pictures to school and have a good time guessing which is whose. But there's still one picture left over. . . .

It's Mr. Judd! Now the children can imagine their teacher as a baby (complete with mustache). The idea that everyone starts out as a baby and that babies and kids become grownups is conveyed with a light touch in this sprightly school story, which acknowledges young children's fascination with babies and with the idea that even the most revered grownups used to wear diapers. Readers will want to play Guess the Baby in their own classrooms.

About The Author

Simon French began his writing career as a thirteen-year-old in Sydney's western suburbs, and had his first novel published five years later while still at high school. In the years since, his writing for children has earned critical acclaim and several awards, including the 1987 Children's Book Council of Australia's Book of the Year Award for All We Know. The characters in his stories often develop from children he has worked with - from babies and toddlers in an inner-city crisis refuge, to the pupils he has taught over many years at primary schools in suburban and rural New South Wales. Simon continues to work as a teacher in a small school in Sydney's rural outskirts. He is unable to imagine life without good books, interesting music and movies, exotic food, travel to new places, old cars and true friends.

    Comments about Guess the Baby:

    I used this book in the classroom with my junior school children. It was a great conversation starter. We discussed why we look the way we do and if we look the same as when we were born. It also inspired us to bring in our own baby photos and guess who is who.
