This simple and beautiful board book is a wonderful choice for babies and preschoolers. My experience is that babies love seeing pictures of other babies. The varied, colorful clothing worn by the babies in the book adds more visual interest. Older children will learn to appreciate the beautiful variety of babies from all over the world. They can learn the names of several other countries. Most importantly, they learn that just as they are loved and valued, so are all children, no matter where they live.

I sent this along with several others, to my great-niece for her 2nd birthday. Her mom reports that Global Babies is the one she immediately LOVED most!

This is the second copy of this book my 18 mo old nephew has owned. This first copy was loved until the pages stuck together. He enjoys looking at the babies and will look for this book so his Mother can 'read' it to him. There is no story just wonderful pictures.

A friend gave us this book when our oldest was born. It is well done and a fabulous way to expose kids to other countries and cultures from early on. Both of our kids have loved it as babies and toddlers and now it is a great way to look up countries on the world map as well. I would HIGHLY recommend it!

I wish there were more books like this for kids! This has become my official new baby gift. I include it in all shower and welcome baby gifts. It was the first book my son really loved to read at just about 6 months old. He still likes this book at over a year old. I love that it exposes him to what people look and dress like all over the world.

My son has owned this book since he was born. Twenty months later he still loves to read the simple story and enjoy the beautiful photographs. I give this as a gift to all the new babies in our world.

This is a book of baby faces; faces of all colors from all around the world. Most show native dress. In a world where we need to promote international understanding in the hopes that small children may grow to find a more peaceful world, this book in a first step to learning about different cultures. My one year old granddaughter loves to look at all the faces. I highly recommend it!
