Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-The rhyming text opens "Baby born/in winter's sleep/snowflakes fall/snuggle deep." The verse continues to record milestones in a newborn's development, be it cooing, rolling, creeping, or crawling. Each sentence starts with the word "Baby," thus keeping the text focused and simple. The watercolor illustrations, on the other hand, are anything but. Instead of following one child's growth as the text implies, each page features several children of different races. While the background scenery is detailed and precious, the babies look like floppy dolls with stiff round heads. Older kids, who are hardly distinguishable from the infants, are also included, confusing the issue at hand. The few adults present look like caricatures with one wide-armed man acting more like a scarecrow than a human being. To further muddle this title, flaps lift to reveal people or objects that are annoyingly superfluous. Finally, the quiet text is marred by the fact that while the babies are born in winter, they turn a year old in spring, another incongruous detail too large to overlook.

Format: Hardcover
When I first picked up Baby Born, I had to stop and appreciate the heartwarming cover illustration with babies from every culture, in every mood, with colorful blankets snuggling them. Then, every page continues to celebrate a multicultural world, full of simple, joyful moments throughout the seasons. My 3-year-old daughter wants to read it daily, and loves to pick out different faces that she wants to pretend to be. For parents/teachers who want to bring a multicultural awareness to their children through literature, this book is a gift. Three cheers for Chih-Wei Chang, the illustrator!

This is a wonderful, sturdy, and visually very beautiful book about a baby's first year of life. It is especially appropriate for a "winter" baby as the baby in the book is born in winter -- then the baby rolls in spring, crawls in summer, teethes in fall, and walks the next winter. My daughter is a December baby and we love this book.

We bought this book when my daughter was one, she sill LOVES it at 2. (minus all the lift the flaps) This story is so appealing, 'rythmatic', very appealing. The illustrations are wonderfully done. A great book for babys everywhere, of every race.

This charming lift the flap book is very different from the ordinary. Sweet rhymes and adorable pictures will delight both parent and child. When you lift the flaps you will find the unexpected.

When I read this book to my 3-moth-old daughter for the first time, she smiles all the time. I think she loves the rhymes and the bright color in the book. Now, whenever I say " baby born...", even without a book, my daughter starts to smile and listen quietly till I finish the whole story. The detailed illustrations and the rhymes make me feel so good every time I read it. I believe this book will always be my daughter's favorite, and mine, too.

I bought this book for all my friends having winter babies. I love the board book version, so I can share it with my baby now. I am hoping to hold onto it as a keepsake for her. The illustrations are beautiful and colorful. This book is short and sweet. My 4 month old enjoys having it read to her.

I echo the previous book reviewer. We bought this book for our daughter when she was 8-months old and it was her absolute favorite. Now she's two and she still loves it. This should be a classic for years to come. Help get the secret out!

Love this book:

- The illustrations are beautiful
- The story itself is incredibly sweet.
- Shows all the different seasons
- Outlines different baby "milestones" throughout the book (holding head up, sitting, teeth, walking, etc.)
