Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“Wherever they are born, girls are beautiful, strong, bold, and bright,” opens this board book from the nonprofit Global Fund for Children, which follows the organization’s American Babies and Global Babies. Bright, up-close photographs of babies from around the world are labeled with their respective nations. The babies’ smiling faces and bright-colored clothing (which ranges from everyday jumpers to, in the case of one Russian child, a fur suit) are attention-grabbing, and the overall message (“Baby girls can grow up to change the world”) is empowering. Up to age 3. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Baby girls are precious. But some people, and some parts of the world, do not value them. Ifyou have never seen news showing baby girls and adult women being treated as second class women, or generally been exposed to this truth about our world, you might not know that baby girls are not necessarily valued. In a way that struck me as very strange since the human race would quickly die out without the diversity of women bearing children. This board book was developed by the Global Fund for Children to raise awareness of how precious baby girls are. The pictures of girls from around the world are delightful and are meant to show them at their best. A young one from Benin rides on her mother's back while others from cooler climates are dressed in warm clothes and fancy hats. These girls are brave, bold, and bright, and as the book says they can grow up to change the world. Those who can afford the book probably already cherish their children, whether they are boys or girls, while those who need to be educated may be helped by the Fund. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
In a natural follow-up to Global Babies (2006) and American Babies (2010), an empowering text and vibrant photos present baby girls from Canada, China, Guatemala, France, India, Liberia, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, the United States and more. From the girl on the cover wearing a hijab to an American tyke wearing overalls, the girls mostly sport everyday wear in a broader range of colors than pink and purple. As girls are not always valued, the text, meted out in a few words per page, is a rallying cry in support of their potential: "Baby girls / can grow up / to change the world." The portrait of each girl is presented on a full page or with a boldly colored border that allows for the occasional word of text. The babies mostly present happy or serious facial expressions, and a few engage in activities that illustrate girl power in subtle ways; an American baby, in her father's arms, clutches a crayfish, and an Italian toddler looks as if she is "reading" aloud from a book. Another baby-faced winner from the Global Fund for Children, with an important social message to boot. (Board book. 3 mos.-1)
