Summary:This book is all about babies from all around the world. Each page describes a baby from a differnt culture and how they are carried around. It describes who carries them, in what, and where they are from.Personal Reaction:I thought this was a great book to show how all different cultures can do something the same, just in a differnt way. It has a great author's note at the end that went into detail about each culture, and why they carried the babies the way they did.Classroom Extensions:1. Great way to start a discussion on how each culture is different and alike.2. Discuss how their moms might have carried them, and have them draw some pictures of moms and their babies.

I really found this book to be adorable although a bit repetitive. Every two-page spread shows a different family and the back of the book is filled with more detailed explanations of the different cultures. It is not just about how the babies are carried though; many of the pages describe a quick run-through of their daily lives. It is a very interesting look into the different customs and adaptations we have come up with around the world and I could see it being used in an ESL or social studies classroom.

This book's inspiration was obviously the fact that both authors were carried until they were three. The illustrations are striking and colourful. It takes you on a journey throughout various cultures showing many different methods of babywearing. Both my 1yo and 4yo loved this book as did I.
