Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The series continues with babies who live the life style of certain groups—Urban Babies Wear Black, Jet Set Babies Wear Wings and nearly half a dozen more titles have obviously attracted an audience. In this board book, readers meet artsy babies. They naturally get paint on their smocks and in this case our young boy is also wearing a paint spattered beret. Another baby poses au naturale and yet another has a special gallery for his collected works—the refrigerator. In preschool art class some artsy babies throw clay and at home appreciate a good still life by enjoying a lovely piece of the fruit. The closing scene shows an artsy baby asleep in a stroller under a Calder-like mobile. Definitely a book for those with an artistic bent. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
