AMERICAN BABIES by Global Fund for Children

AMERICAN BABIES

Age Range: 0 - 1

KIRKUS REVIEW

Photographs of adorable babies (is there any other kind?) of varying ethnicities appear in both full-page and panel insets to a very brief (one sentence), vaguely patriotic text. With just one phrase per spread, there's little to distract from the main attractions. One overall-clad lad sits in a field of golden grain, another tyke crawls across the sand ("from sea to shining sea"), a little girl intently scans a board book and yet another smiles coyly over her mother's shoulder. The dark-skinned, utterly toothless boy crowing with delight ("spreading joy") is worth the price of admission all by himself. As babies never seem to grow tired of looking at other babies, this glowing celebration seems to be a surefire hit. A portion of the proceeds benefits The Global Fund for Children. (Board book. 0-1)
