Both my kids fell in love with this book - in fact I even bought the board book version to keep in the car. The verse is great and fun to read and the artwork is fabulous and includes a lot of diversity. Both kids like to spend extra time on each page just looking at the pictures and pointing out various things - kids in a wagon, riding on dad's shoulder. It's one I enjoy reading with them over and over (and can actually recite from memory). I buy for all my friends having babies!

This is the book you and your toddler are looking for! The one that will become an instant staple in your child's library, the one they will bring to your lap time and time again. We checked this book out from the library a few months ago and my then 20 month old daughter couldn't get enough of it. She absolutely adored the pictures and so did I! The text is easy and fun to read. The story itself is short enough to keep the child engaged yet long enough to get in plenty of snuggle time. I am ordering this book now for my daughter (now 23 months) for Christmas. I just know her eyes will light up when she sees it again! I'm excited to read it again myself!

My son received this book when he was born, but didn't start to appreciate it until he was close to two. Now it's a staple. The illustrations are detailed, depicting a diverse set of families and babies having fun. Plus, it's easy to read aloud!

My daughter received this book for her first birthday last year and we have read it every night since! It is definately her favourite and she finds something new in the wonderful pictures every week. This is also a great book for new siblings so they can learn all about their new baby brother or sister.

It starts "Everyday, everywhere, babies are born" and the illustrations show maybe 10 different newborn infants all lined up, each unique and expressive. Then we watch as the babies get rocked, get held, eat, crawl, walk, play and so on. Each page the babies are little older, and the last page shows a 1st birthday celebrationBoth the words and the illustrations are wonderful and largely because of the details. The young child gets a nice summary of all the different things babies do and the variety of ways they do it. The text is easy to memorize. And the illustrations are intimate with charming modern touches (published 2004). And it captures so much. Mom is found standing in front of window holding a baby, with tired eyes looking out at the night. Parents fall asleep rocking babies, moms breastfeed, parents and grand parents wear baby björns, take babies to mall play areas, play with them etc. This is one of our favorites, and for a time (around when my son was born) my 2-year-old daughter had us read this to her almost every night.

This is a wonderful boardbook., and the pictures will give it lasting appeal, older kids can have fun noticing little details. This is a rhyming list of the things babies do, from eating to learning to walk. The pictures are charming, and the text is delightful. I think this would be an especially good book to give as a gift to a new sibling.

This book is in the infant and toddler classes at my work because they are in love with babies. Babies are able to learn about themselves and see illustrations that look like them and what they do. Toddlers seem to be obsessed because they are no longer babies anymore! They like to look at the pictures and say, 'Look a baby!'

Super great book to read to your young ones, everyone loves babies...each page is nicely illustrated with the actions babies do everyday. it says ages 2-5 but my daughter is 6 and this is one of her favs as she loves babies!!

Babies all over the world do the same things-sleep, play, eat, get kisses, and learn to crawl (in addition to many other things). What stood out to me in this book was the diversity in the illustrations. Not only were there children of all races, but all types of parents too-a mom and a dad, single moms, single dads, 2 moms, and 2 dads.

A very popular book in our house. I really enjoy how it shows different pictures of babies in everyday activities. It even shows a baby breastfeeding which is rare in children's books. There are families of all different shapes, sizes, and colors, and I think it's great for my kids to see.

Ali (almost 16 months) likes this book. The text is lovely. It has a nice rhythm and rhyme which relates directly to the pictures. The pictures have a lot for her to notice, and the topic of "babies" is one that interests her greatly. I thought it might be too corny, but it's definitely a hit.
