Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

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. (June)

. . . a likely favorite for toddler and lap-sit storytimes.
Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
One chubby baby girl is all a-flutter as she discovers all her parts, with the help of her family, of course. Tender watercolors envelope baby, reflecting the safety and comfort a family brings. What does baby have? Bright eyes, a neat little nose, cute little ears, a plump tummy, strong legs and ten little toes all wrapped up with love. Everyone loves all of her, and tells her so, from Mommy and Daddy all the way down to the dog. This is a great book for reading aloud and cuddling to. It is also a springboard for describing one's own parts and rhyming a sing-song lyric of your own. The story is not without hazards. How can readers resist tickling and squeezing all the mentioned parts? A giggle-fest is sure to ensue. Adlers' verse is clever enough, but Nakata's illustrations make for cheerful accompaniments that result in the sheer bliss of knowing you are loved. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young
School Library Journal
PreS–Through bouncy verses, children follow a toddler’s antics as her grandparents, parents, a brother, and a pet dog celebrate everything about her, from her eyes to her tummy to her toes. “Baby’s got ears,/cute little ears./Smaller than bunny ears./Stick out kinda funny ears./Hearing everyoney ears./Baby’s got two./Who loves baby’s ears?/Me! I do!” Cheery watercolor and gouache artwork breaks the spreads into full-, double-, and quarter-page images. Despite the use of “baby” in the title, toddlers are the more appropriate audience for the book’s pastel color palette and playful details. This is a lively lap-reading experience for the very young and their grown-ups, likely inspiring a dose of tickling in the process.–Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Speech pathologist Adler harnesses her knowledge of language to introduce baby's cutest body parts (all of them) through playful sounds, words, beats and rhyme. Light, lovely verse delivers gleeful repetitions of vowel and consonant sounds; words bubble and bounce, coming together in firm, satisfying stress patterns. A small reader will proudly pound a fist as they declare their tummy is "smooth and tight / as a drum-drum-drummy!" Beautiful recurrences occur in Nakata's sunny watercolor illustrations as well. Spring colors surround the adorable baby girl and her doting family, all with rosy cheeks, alert eyes and ready smiles. Each body part receives the same treatment: a close-up on left page, followed by a four-square quadrant of action images on right. A closing question surfaces again and again, "Who loves baby's [toes, legs, ears]?" The following page reveals a family member exclaiming, "Me! I do." Readers come to anticipate this warm affirmation and join in the chorus. This intuitive picture book exposes children to the beauty of language, their bodies and a communal expression of love.

    Wonderful for playtime and bedtime!

    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...
