Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-The rhyming text opens "Baby born/in winter's sleep/snowflakes fall/snuggle deep." The verse continues to record milestones in a newborn's development, be it cooing, rolling, creeping, or crawling. Each sentence starts with the word "Baby," thus keeping the text focused and simple. The watercolor illustrations, on the other hand, are anything but. Instead of following one child's growth as the text implies, each page features several children of different races. While the background scenery is detailed and precious, the babies look like floppy dolls with stiff round heads. Older kids, who are hardly distinguishable from the infants, are also included, confusing the issue at hand. The few adults present look like caricatures with one wide-armed man acting more like a scarecrow than a human being. To further muddle this title, flaps lift to reveal people or objects that are annoyingly superfluous. Finally, the quiet text is marred by the fact that while the babies are born in winter, they turn a year old in spring, another incongruous detail too large to overlook.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
Kirkus Reviews
An adorable lift-the-flap book that works on a number of levels. The soothing verse follows a year in the life of a newborn, from birth to crawling and teething to first words and first steps, while the illustrations highlight the seasons of the year. The simple, gentle rhymes are perfect to read aloud; the patterns of the detailed illustrations include a patchwork of textures and a tumble of babies of every shade: brown, pink, tan, orange, beige. The flaps add an interactive element, revealing fun surprises. Such a sturdy, well-considered board book will please both parents and children. (Board book. 1-3)

    We love it

    This book was my daughter's favorite. The rhymes are soothing, the pictures are adorable. She loved the intricate details and colors, and the tiny baby faces in many shades. Her favorite part is the Thanksgiving scene, where the cat and kittens are eating too. At eight years old, now she reads it to her baby brother.

    Great for January/February babies

    My one-year-old little girl loves this book. She loves pictures of babies, opening the flaps, and hearing the fun rhymes. Flaps could be sturdier, maybe the board book is better. I like the book because the season and growth of the baby in the book follow what was happening with my February girl.
