Following 2013’s Global Baby Girls, this board book pairs photographs of very young boys from more than a dozen countries with a concise, direct message. “Around the world, baby boys are kind, curious, smart, and fun,” writes Ajmera, founder of the nonprofit Global Fund for Children. “Baby boys can grow up to do anything!” The photographs are labeled with the nations the boys hail from—a Belgian child examines the moss and leaves covering a fallen tree, while a boy from Vietnam embraces a dog that’s as tall as he is—but it’s a sense of commonality, not difference, that shines through on every page. Up to age 3. (Sept.)

In the natural follow-up to Global Baby Girls (2013), youngsters can meet the sons of such nations as Australia, Canada, Guatemala, France, Mexico, Taiwan, Tobago, the United States and more. In vivid close-up photos and full-body shots, most boys sport modern dress, though a few wear traditional garb. The simple, encouraging text follows the formula established by earlier Global Baby books, asserting that "Around the world," baby and toddler boys share universal attributes. Each eye-catching photo is labeled to indicate where the child or children are from. Many are bordered by bright colors to allow the bright yellow type to pop. In some subtle messaging, the boys are described as "kind" on a double-page spread that captures two babies hugging on the verso and a toddler nuzzling a dog almost the same height as he is on the recto. While the ethnic representation here is quite diverse, the lack of representation of babies from any African countries is surprising.Oh boy, oh boy! These bright-eyed tykes are sure to draw any baby in. (Board book. 3 mos.-1)
