Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
"Every day, everywhere, babies are ...born; kissed; dressed; fed; rocked; and carried" is the refrain for the first half of this absolutely adorable book about little ones and their families. The second half is devoted to the things that all babies do and experience as they explore this world of ours. "Every day, everywhere, babies make ...noise, like toys, play games, make friends, are crawling, and growing." "Every day, everywhere, babies are loved." The refrain words are in a larger font at the top of each page, and the rhyming text flows across, under, and through the multitude of families shown with their little ones. The double spread for the "crawling" page shows the adults gathered round a huge pile of gym mats while the babies go "forward and backward, on bottoms and knees, upstairs and downstairs, wherever they please." The detailed pictures support the text with strikingly loving interactions of grown-ups and children. The wide variety of faces and relationships fosters greater understanding that families are made up of people who love one another. Needless to say families expecting a new addition to their family will love this fabulous look at babies, as well as teachers who are presenting the "family" unit at school. The expressions on all of the faces are simply perfect for the emotion called for by the text. This is a wonderful book for discussing how alike all people are, and for observing some of the differences that make us individuals. Reissued in a large format board book, this version also includes a "Baby on Board" window cling. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
