Product Description

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Striking in its simplicity and effectiveness, this colorful board book takes into account two fundamental facts. First, babies like to look at faces, particularly the faces of other babies. Second, today's babies will grow up in a world that is, increasingly, a global neighborhood. This introduces young children to their neighbors throughout the world by providing clear photographs of babies in Guatemala, Thailand, Greenland, Mali, the U.S., India, South Africa, Fiji, Peru, Afghanistan, Malawi, Spain, Iraq, Rwanda, and Bhutan. Like Ajmera's earlier books connected with the nonprofit organization Global Fund for Children, such as To Be a Kid (1999) and Be My Neighbor (2004), this title seeks to form a broad, inclusive sense of community. Each page features a single child in a photo shown against a rich, solid background color. Appearing phrase by phrase at the bottom of the pages, the book's complete text reads, "Wherever they live, / wherever they go, / whatever they wear, / whatever they feel, / babies everywhere / are beautiful, / special, / and loved." Attuned to its audience, the book's close-ups emphasize the children's faces and create a feeling of connection between subject and viewer. In an era when board books too often recycle picture book stories intended for older children, here's one that is just right for babies and toddlers. Phelan, Carolyn

4.0 out of 5 stars Best suited for babies Feb. 21 2009
By A. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
The "babies - preschool" tag is a little misleading. This is a beautiful, vividly colored book however there are few words - as in 3 or 4 words every other page. While it's fun to look at, the lack of words/story keeps my 2 year old from enjoying it like most of her books. She spends maybe a minute on it, and is ready to move on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and important book! May 6 2010
By Melissa Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I love this book - it's been one of my daughter's favorites since we bought it, and it still is. (She was 3 months when we got it and is 12 months now.) She loves looking at the bright pictures of babies' faces. And as a parent, I am thrilled to introduce this message to her at such a young age. It does a better job than any other children's book I've seen of displaying all the wonderful diversity in the world and reminding us that each one of us is beautiful and special.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute photos July 31 2009
By Audrey Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My son loved this book as a baby. He liked to look at photos of faces. I found that kids under 2 prefer photos to drawings, so this was a good book. The text seems kind of contrived, so sometimes we just looked at the pictures and didn't actually "read" this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love these babies! May 27 2008
By HMS Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Even though I have read this book over and over and over again to my granddaughter throughout her first year of life, I always love looking at the beautiful babies from around the world. Babies in colorful clothing from such countries as Mali, Afghanistan, Iraq, Spain, Peru, Guatemala, South Africa, and India, delight the readers each time the book is opened. This is a great way to travel the world while sitting in a chair snuggling with baby.
