FAMILY LULLABY

Age Range: 0 - 3

KIRKUS REVIEW

Repeated words and design create a lullaby to family love. “We all love Baby. Yes we do.” Calm, smiling family members all love Baby a lot. On the left of each page, circles frame (portrait-style) the cut-paper collages of two people who show how they love Baby. Like lapel buttons for presidential campaigns, these show the important people in Baby’s life. From Mommy feeding Baby to Daddy burping Baby to hip Grandpa sporting a front baby carrier, the world revolves around this young one. There are patty-cakes, piggybacks and snuggles and the always-smiling baby soaking up love and attention. Small, colored circles float like bubbles on the right-hand page to accompany the bouncy, cheerleader-like refrain. One can imagine Baby bouncing on reader’s knee as an accompanying activity to the reading, which will surely take place over and over again. (Picture book. 0-3)
