The Baby Is Growing Up

Author shares a children’s picture book of how parents feel for their babies with the release of this English-Spanish bilingual story

A young mother shares her feelings of love, hope and inspiration in this English-Spanish bilingual children’s picture book, Growing Up: Creciendo. Author Mercedes Baker expresses her own emotions in this story, which many parents, guardians, and caretakers can relate to.

This book started as a personal experience by the author as she was sitting back with her book in her lap and a pen in her hand. She was just watching her son and wrote down what she was thinking and how she was feeling. The rhyme scheme in this book portrays how her natural feeling is put into this sincere children's book. The metaphors are something everyone goes through in life, highs and lows, but at the end of the day, with strong love and support, a child can accomplish their dreams.

“I'm hoping mothers, parents, care takers of children, and even children themselves can feel the love from the beginning to the end of this short, yet meaningful story,” shares the author.

When Mercedes Baker was growing up, she always loved to learn, but it wasn't until her freshman year in high school when she learned about her love for literature. She is a young mother of two, but one thing she knew for sure is that she wants her children to have a fun exploration with reading books. By the time her son was one and a half, he had memorized his favorite book, so she decided to make up stories for story time in bed. Since he'd fall asleep to her made-up stories, she knew they'd be good enough to write and publish.
