Jimmy Fallon

illustrated by Miguel Ordonez

Everything is . . .

MAMA!

Jimmy Fallon , one of the most popular entertainers in the world and NBC's Tonight Show host, was on a mission with his first children's book to have every baby's first word be DADA. And it worked! A lot of babies' first words were DADA. However, everything after that was MAMA.

So take a lighthearted look at the world from your baby's point of view as different animals try to teach their children that there are other words in addition to MAMA for familiar objects and activities.

Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon did everything in his power to ensure that his daughter's first word would be Dada!" Yes, he has many other projects on his plate, like hosting NBC's The Tonight Show . But he was determined that his daughter would say "Dada!" before any other word. He worked very hard on this. Jimmy Fallon lives with his wife, Nancy, and their daughters, Winnie Rose and Frances Cole, in New York City. Winnie's first word was "Mama!" Miguel Ordonez illustrated Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada, which was honored by the Society of Illustrators. He lives in Madrid with his wife Lucia and their two daughters, Carla and Vera. Carla and Vera's first word was Mama."
