Ellie + Ott, Month 2: Alarm Clock Book
Ellie + Ott, a new book series based out of Minnesota, is changing how parents learn about their child’s development; giving them a month-by-month playbook on engaging with their baby and honing their parenting chops.
Each set includes:
1. Five playtime activity idea cards based on a baby’s natural development
2. Three parent skill-building strategies to give mom & dad some creative ideas to hone their parenting chops
3. An original Ellie + Ott board book that shows a moment in real-life parenthood
Month 2: Alarm Clock
Month 2 in the Ellie + Ott series includes five playtime activity cards based on the naturally-occurring development babies experience in their first month, three parent skill-building strategies all around the theme of Recovery Mode, and an Ellie + Ott original board book titled: Alarm Clock.
Alarm Clock shows Ott’s parents, Nina & Jack struggling to feel productive and wondering if they’ll ever get back to the way things were. The illustrations begin including red, as that’s the first color babies will see, but is still mostly black and white with bold lines and simple illustrations. The book even includes a short, recognizable song so babies can hear their parents sing! All of this makes for a smoother transition into month 2!
