All of Baby, Nose to Toesby Victoria Adler, Hiroe Nakata (Illustrator)
From eyes to ears and legs to toes, there's a lot for baby to discover, and even more for a family to love. Bright, buoyant art, a catchy rhythm and rhyme, and a roly-poly little baby are sure to inspire plenty of giggling and grabbing and feet-in-the-air-ing. Already a hit in hardcover, this is the perfect first board book for every baby-and for every parent who loves that baby to bits.
As infectious as a baby's first smile, this celebratory book will enchant any family with a newborn to love. While ostensibly exploring a baby's anatomy, Adler's sunny poem and Nakata's ebullient watercolors demonstrate not only a baby's exploratory joy but also the palpable delight a baby brings to a family. The satisfyingly predictable pattern of verse lends itself to interactive hugs and tickles. A closeup illustration of the roly-poly baby ("Baby's got eyes,/ bright little eyes") is followed by a page divided into four illustrations ("Round as pies eyes./ Just the right size eyes./ Like an owl-wise eyes./ Peeka-peeka-boo"). The question "Who loves baby's eyes?" (later asked about nose, ears, tummy, etc.) is answered at the turn of the page ("Me, I do.") as Nakata shows the baby interacting with different family members. A final verse and spread featuring the whole clan-parents, grandparents, brother and even the dog-provides an adulatory conclusion. Although the book is recommended for those under age two, it is especially suitable as a new-baby present for any member of a warmhearted family. Up to age 2.

A sweet book to help remind baby of all their special features!
I originally bought this book for my baby niece, and ended up buying another one for my 3 years old daughter! We love reading it together, as my daughter points out to different parts of her body. It's poetic, rhythmic, and reminds me of what a miracle it is, to have a child...
