Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New York City–based photographer Donenfeld makes her children’s book debut with an alphabet book that pairs grayscale photographs of adorable diaper-clad babies with colorful props that correspond to each letter. On the B page, a baby stands warily in a pair of bright yellow rain boots. Elsewhere, another baby gnaws on an inflatable globe (for E, as in Earth), and a third pokes experimentally at a rainbow-colored xylophone. The variety of poses and situations, along with the babies’ beaming smiles, should easily hold the attention of the very young. Simultaneously available: Baby 123. Up to age 2. (Jan.)

Praise for Baby ABC:
"A playful package." -Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews
In black-and-white photos, babies cavort through the alphabet accompanied by brightly colored objects and accessories. Each page spotlights an oversized letter in a bold hue and one pre-walking or toddling infant in diapers using a prop that starts with the featured letter. The "G" page, for example, features a bubbly cherub wearing bright red glasses; a clear image of the letter, also in red, floats nearby, taking up almost half the page. The expressive babies are photographed against spare white backgrounds, but it is surprising that there is so little diversity; only four babies of the 26 are obviously not Caucasian. The sister title, Baby 123, uses similar black-and-white photos with colored objects to count, with each numeral on a double-page spread. Taking readers up to 10, the babies play with one large exercise ball, two maracas, three chairs and so on. The final spread recaps the numbers and objects that have come before. The layout and design of both titles are clean and clear. While a couple of the accessories may be a little abstract for babies, such as the crown or the toy iron in the alphabet book, or difficult to count, like the haphazard clump of bears in the counting title, the concepts presented are more of a framing device to give babies what they want: pictures of other creatures like themselves. A playful package that could have used more multicultural representation. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
