PreSchool-K—Despite the subtitle, this book is not just for babies. It's a charming and entertaining easy reader as well. The acrylic illustrations are done in a pastel, springtime palette with soft edges that give the animals and their scenery a happy and safe feeling. The book opens with mother bird teaching her baby to fly "…in the blue, blue sky,/where the wind blows whish./'Look!' cheeps the baby bird./'I see a…/FISH!'" The fish sees a baby snake, the snake sees an otter, and so on. At the end, a baby mouse spots a human child, and all of the youngsters gather around a pond as the toddler exclaims, "Babies everywhere!" This is a sweet book that has a rhythm reminiscent of "Over in the Meadow." The text flows easily from scene to scene, and as each baby is discovered, children can call out the rhyming name, which adds to the level of interaction.—Kate Neff, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL

With the help of their mamas, an array of six baby animals fly, swim, wiggle, and slide in a circular tail-to-tail search to spot other animal babies. The rhyming text pauses before the page turn where the tip of a tail is pictured and the next spread reveals the new creature. For instance: “So mama helps the baby fish, splish, splash, swim through the weeds and the reeds in the green, green lake. ‘Look,’ blurps the baby fish, ‘I see a . . . page turn SNAKE!’” The progression continues, from bird to fish to snake to otter to duck to mouse, and finally to a child, who brings the story full circle by showing that baby animals are everywhere. The soft, warmly hued, acrylic art cheerfully invites young listeners to participate. Ready-made for chubby hands to reach and point and sure to bring requests of “Read it again!” Preschool. --Julie Cummins --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Overall, I am thrilled with my purchase, but i don't like that the human mom only teaches her toddler to kiss because that is not something that turns a toddler into an adult or helps him survive as an adult.... seriously she should have taught her son to walk or read or talk or just anything useful.... but the rest of the book was so good, that i can't take off a star for that minor issue.
It's perfect for boys or girls, and I love it so much I've started ordering an extra copy of it to have on hand for baby showers!
