December_2013_small

December is here and winter weather is on its way, meaning it’s time to bundle the kids in layers of warm clothing and head outside to build a snowman! Colder temperatures don’t mean you and the little ones have to huddle inside and combat cabin fever. Pick up copies of Boston Baby: A Field Guide for Urban Parents and North Shore Baby: A Field Guide for Parents North of Boston for heaps of ideas on how to keep the kiddos busy without losing your mind. Illustrations from these diaper bag companions are the subject of this month’s digital desktop calendar.

Know a new or expecting mother? Boston Baby and North Shore Baby make the perfect holiday gift!
