My 3-year old son enjoyed Hello Baby!, but not as much as he would had we discovered it a year ago. When his Brown Bear/Polar Bear/etc. phase was in full swing, it probably would have been one of his daily favorites. I'd absolutely recommend this book to parents of toddlers. It has fun rhymes, eye-catching artwork, and a ton of "again, again!" potential.

These are some of the lyrics in Mem Fox's new book, "Hello, Baby!" The concept behind the book are possible answers to the question "who are you?" Different animals are suggested until the end of the book where the final question is asked... "Are you my treasure?" [The answer, of course, is yes.]
The pictures and lyrics give adults and little ones lots of ways to interact (which I love). You can talk about the animals, colors and action. You can yawn like the hippo and wink like the owl. And in general I have high praise for this book. My only hesitation to giving 5-Stars is the art. While some of award winning illustrator Steve Jenkins' paper-work is brilliant. Love the owl. Love the lizard. Some of it is rather dark and muddy for very young children. The monkey's tail, for example, is just a black tail, quite unremarkable. And the porcupine is somehow not cute.
Four Stars. Very good concept book. Good Read-aloud. Would make a lovely gift. There is a lot to recommend this book, I only wish the artwork was more playful.
mom and reviewer for BooksForKids-reviews
But... she gets it... she calls out the names of the animals and makes noises and plays with the baby's hand at the end of the book. And after all, am I the audience? No not really.
This keeps her entertained a lot more than some of the other books that we have so I have no complaints.
I'd give this book three stars for not being able to completely pull off the concept of the book especially for the younger children the book is meant for. However, my daughter still really likes the pictures and story so I give it a four. Try flipping through the book before purchasing it.
