Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This endearing book is made up of sayings, games, and adorations used by loving adults as they interact and bond with infants. Words are written in with large, pastel letters in conjunction with smaller red print. The photographs, reminiscent of Anne Geddes' pictures of costumed infants, are unmistakably the book's focal point. Each two-page spread is a combination of a baby-face close-up and a group of babies wearing brightly printed diaper covers, and each page depicts an accurate match between the text and the babies' gestures and expressions.

Special features include a spread on the inside front cover displaying objects babies will recognize and perhaps name, such as a ball, shoes, a bottle, and a blanket, and the inside back cover has a baby anatomy lesson.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
