5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and fun April 18 2014
Format:Board book
Last year we adopted a 5 month old baby girl from Ethiopia. We were then given this book by a friend as it had been highly recommended. We could not believe the impact it has had on our baby girl; she adores this book. We read it to her most nights as the just stares and smiles at all the different baby girls. They have a lot of different nationalities of babies in the book and that's what make it so interesting for them. A must buy for any child.

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 Beautiful, captivating photography introduces little ones to babies all over the world Feb. 16 2009
By The Well-Read Child - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Kids are fascinated with babies. They love to touch them, beg to hold them, and enjoy looking at them, so I think they will really love this week's baby/preschooler pick. Global Babies is a board book that features 17 beautiful photographs of babies around the world. Gorgeous babies from Thailand, Mali, the United States, Afghanistan, and more are dressed in customary clothing and show their distinct personalities. For example, the baby from Fiji sits on its knees with its hands behind its head just grinning at the camera, and a baby with large, glowing eyes from Rwanda peeks out from the multi-colored wrap that holds it close to its mother.

The text itself is one sentence that spans across the book, demonstrating what all babies have in common, regardless of where they're from.

Young children will be captivated by the photographs of all the babies in the book, and older preschoolers may be inspired to learn more about the different countries represented in the book. I can think of a number of expansion activities to teach children more about geography, different, cultures, and more.

In a simple, approachable format Global Babies helps children develop an appreciation for diversity and teaches us that despite all of our differences, we are all the same.
