This sweet story portrays the similarities and differences between babies/toddlers born in different areas of the world.
Gorgeous illustrations, with a loving and gentle story, show many ethnicities of babies and teaches "brotherhood" through similarities kids can relate to.
My 3-year-old loved this book and asked us to read it several times in a row. He made associations between the pictures (near and far), between the babies, and asked LOTS of questions.
Gorgeous yet adorable watercolor illustrations and a sweet text "shout" the comforting message "we are loved." I loved how it s hoed my son that babies look different, yet they are all loved dearly. At the end, the mother gives her baby 3 kisses on his nose, so I get to do the same with my children. What a fantastic way to finish a book!
This is a picture book celebrating the joys babies bring us.
There is lots to do with this book. First, celebrate love. You can also do some counting, identify body parts, even some animals. It also teaches diversity and tolerance at a level toddlers can absorb it.
