Brief bits of simple but well-phrased verse ("". . .lazing, dozy,/snoozing, cozy,/lying down/or in the chair,/round ones, long ones/small ones/strong ones,/babies, babies/everywhere!"") caption nine double spreads of as many as five babies at a time, all engaged in activity. The photos are charming: imaginatively posed and containing surprising variety, from ""squashing the shopping"" in the supermarket cart to splashing in the bath--though there are only one and a half cases of tears and astonishingly little mess in the eating scene. Babies are sure to enjoy finding themselves here.
