Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"Celebrates children as it explores the alphabet."

"I would highly recommend this book."

"This would be a wonderful book to read aloud to young children or to share in circle time as part of a whole group learning experience."

CM Magazine
"Most children...will respond to this playful book with delighted giggles and wiggles, especially if the implicit invitation to tickle and cuddle while reading is indulged."
Quill & Quire
"The affectionate nonsense of Fitch's text is well paired with the lively, colourful pictures by Laura Watson."
School Library Journal
PreS-In this alphabet book, babies from around the world pose with objects or perform actions to correspond with each letter. Themba shows off her toes while Ulli plays the ukele. Four lines of verse accompany each letter, as for G: "Giggling baby,/Googledy-goo!/Let's play a game of/Peek-a-little boo!" A glossary includes the babies' names, their meanings, and the children's nationality. Unfortunately, the cutesy text feels forced to fit the alphabet frame, and many of the amateurish acrylics do not relate to it. The image of Xylon playing the xylophone is particularly jarring as the text is quieting down to a bedtime finale. Stick with Roberta Grobel Intrater's "Baby Faces" board book series (Scholastic).-Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
