Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Lach's text describes some familiar activities, each one matched with a painting by Mary Cassatt that lovingly depicts a moment between a mother and baby. The two-word rhyming phrases are presented against white left-hand pages with delicate pink borders. Additional color and emotional content are reserved for the right-hand pages, which show such scenes as a mother holding a napping baby, another reaching for a toddler's hand, and one checking the bathwater temperature. The pictures include a selection of Cassatt's work in several mediums: pastels, oils, etchings, and prints. The final pages offer descriptive information about the selected works of art. Adult caregivers and young children alike will be calmed by these tranquil paintings.

From Booklist

PreS-K. The work of the great American Impressionist Mary Cassatt seems to epitomize the ideal of motherly love. This small, lovely book includes images from 16 of her paintings, pastels, and prints in beautiful full-page reproductions. On the page facing each picture is a two-word chant: "baby sits," "baby claps," etc. The simplicity of the text combined with the clear, comforting art will appeal to infants and their caregivers, who will want to turn the pages over and over again. At the back of the book the paintings are reproduced in miniature, with notes about title, medium, date, and size. All the pictures are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Kathy Broderick

We read it almost every night.

We found this at the library when my daughter was about a year old, and realized (after repeatedly renewing it) that it was a wonderful book to own.

Format: Hardcover
This book is beautifully composed with the works of artist Mary Cassat. Each page has two simple words that describe a painting on the following page, making it suitable for the younger child as well as older child. Each of the paintings are of a mother and a child. The book begins with Baby Sits, Baby Stands, Baby Looks, Baby Hands and ending with Baby Hugs, Baby Kisses, Baby Loves. My 14 mo old is mesmorized by this book. She wants to read it every morning when she wakes up, at the very least. She started doing the baby sign that we had been teaching her with the pages that she knew the signs for such as drinks and reads. She also kisses and hugs us or her "Lovie" on the Baby Kisses/Hugs pages. Now she says "baby" and signs for book when she wants to read Baby Loves. My husband and I have been amazed at how much of an impact this one book has had on our daughter. Baby Loves is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the arts as well as promote language and attention to detail. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has done wonders with this book. There is also a very nice, classical piano Baby Loves CD to go with it. "Thank you" to the Welchs for such a special gift!

Format: Hardcover
"Baby Loves" is so beautiful you can put it on your coffee table. And it makes a lovely gift for baby or a preschool child. Magnificent reproductions by impressionist artist Mary Cassatt are paired with simple two word poems. The artist is best known for her paintings portraying the love between mothers and their children. The images - paintings, prints and pastels - accompany short rhymes about a baby's daily activities, such as drinking milk, napping, feeding ducks and hugging.

William Lach wrote the book, and the illustrations are from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, collection. There are 16 pages of paintings, each with its own description. In one picture a mother and child are cuddling with the words, "Baby cuddles." The simple, easy to understand language and powerful artwork make this an ideal book for small children. (Newborn and up). This would also make a wonderful gift for a new mother - or any mother. I just gave it to a friend who recently had her first child and she loves it - apropos of the title. The book also includes facts about the artwork. "Baby Loves" won a "Child Magazine Best Book 2003 Award" and is one of the most exquisite children's books I have seen in a long time. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful book! We found this at the library when my daughter was about a year old, and realized (after repeatedly renewing it) that it was a wonderful book to own. The pictures are, of course, mesmerizing (great for adults during the constant rereading phase). The text is easy for both my daughter and me to memorize, so we can even enjoy it when we are out and about. It's become our favorite birth gift to give, as it's reasonably priced through Amazon. My daughter is now three, and continues to enjoy it. I can see it being a great reading tool soon, due to the repetition and picture clues. Enjoy!

This is one my 6 month old wants again and again. She is fascinated by all the babies and mamas. The reproductions of Cassatt's works are very high quality and the simple text makes it perfect for bedtime.
