This cute, comforting book is full of positive messages of love and advice for the future. Little ones may take literally messages like "Never be afraid to break down walls and build bridges" as they look at a spread of a baby and toddlers playing with colorful blocks. So it will be up to parents to explain the metaphorical meaning of concepts like "Remember your roots, and spread your branches far and wide" and "Put yourself in someone else's shoes."

Kids will enjoy the cute art and loving reassurance, and adults will enjoy Dear Baby as a comforting bedtime read and a handy gift for baby showers and new-parent visits.

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.
