Overview

Peeking through the trees, gliding over ponds, or cozy in their homes, baby animals are busy at play with their parents. How many can be seen and counted? No matter what the number, all have warm and hopeful wishes for the new baby in the family.

Andrea Alban Gosline's heartfelt words paired with Lisa Burnett Bossi's bright, vibrant art create the perfect welcome for every newborn.

A child welcomes baby sister with thoughts based on the actions of animal families, such as wishing that baby will always know the way after seeing a flock of ewes, rams, and kids return to the barn.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K
A young girl announces that her family is going to take her infant sister outside to "meet baby animal friends/and hear the bright blessings around every bend." First, they encounter "Mama doe and her 1 little fawn," whose wish is, "May baby be loved every day of the year." Since this spread illustrates the number one, the inclusion of a second animal, the doe, may be confusing to children. Similarly, on the next spread, the text celebrates "2 wobbly foals," but the illustration shows four horses. Throughout the pictures, most of which conflict with the text, Dad holds the family's newest member while Mom and the older siblings introduce her to the animals and receive blessings. After they have seen the 10 puppies, they plant a welcome tree for baby while the other animal young gaze on, and then gather on their front porch swing. There is a lot going on here. The 10 wishes do not seem to relate to the counting of the animals and the tree planting. The folk-art illustrations are brightly colored and idyllic, conveying a sweet and precious tone. One wonders about the audience for this title. It is unclear whether it is meant to be a counting book for preschoolers, a book for older children to help welcome a baby into the family, or an inspirational gift for a family to receive on the birth of a child. Its overall appeal is limited to those who want sentimental books.
