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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
