Baby's First Hashtag

From one of the authors of How Not to Completely Suck as a New Parent, here is a subversive board book for millennial parents and disillusioned babies.


G is for #gluten, which Mom says is bad.

H is for #hipster, just look at your Dad.

With twenty-six Instagram-style photos accompanied by sharp and witty rhyming couplets, this sturdy abecedarian board book is baby’s first glimpse at the world they will one day grow up to inhabit—a world of hashtags, memes, manbuns, quinoa and organically sourced plaid. Forget learning to count or differentiating between farm animals—what modern babies really need to develop is a strong sense of irony. And E is for #eyeglasses, prescription or fake.

Like the wildly popular publishing phenomenon Go the F*** to Sleep, this book is not really for tots (though they will still find the glossy cardboard pages a satisfying chew). Instead, Baby’s First Hashtag makes a perfect shower gift to amuse soon-to-be and new parents as they make the painful-yet-rewarding transition from skinny jeans and flights of craft beer to burp cloths and puréed yams.
