“Rhyming text paired with cheery photos of racially diverse babies creates a warm invitation to reading for little ones and their caregivers. … Here is a book to help babies one day say ‘I am a reader.’ —Kirkus Reviews

“Glowing smiles and innocent eyes of baby faces greet children at each page turn in this photo-illustrated read-aloud. With wide-eyed expressions, the photo subjects identify, introduce, or reinforce names of common objects and people in a baby or toddler’s world. … A final spread display includes diverse family groups with babies and pets, each photo emphasizing loving relationships and belonging. VERDICT A general purchase recommendation for libraries with robust collections for young families and beginning readers. Perfect for lapsit programs.”–School Library Journal
