This is such a sweet book showing the love that a parent or grandparent has for a baby! I appreciate that the author chose to highlight children of different cultures. The 3 stories have strong parallels that will appeal to young children and have them asking for more more more!
Comments: Babies and toddlers love repetition. This book featuring three similar stories of a grown-up’s love for a child will enchant your little one. It will unconsciously get your kids thinking about the similarities and differences between these stories.
I especially am happy to include this one in our family’s library as it includes a black and Asian baby in addition to a white baby. One of the family’s is mixed race. Since my kids are in a town which has only a slight variation in the color of its citizens I want them even at this young age that humans come in all different shapes, colors, and sizes.
