Who? A Celebration of Babies by Robie H. Harris, illustrated by Natascha Rosenberg
Not since Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyer, illustrated by the phenomenal Marla Frazee came out in 2001 have I read a book for babies with as much effortless diversity. And, while this is a review of Who? A Celebration of Babies by Robie H. Harris, illustrated by Natascha Rosenerg, I have to take a few lines to emphatically urge anyone with a baby, about to have a baby, or needing a gift for anyone who has or is about to have a baby to buy Everywhere Babies, which captures the tender, wonderful joy of babies as it is felt by all kinds and all colors of families.
Who? A Celebration of Babies has a repetitive, playful text that will immediately engage little listeners, just as Rosenberg's bold colors and shapes are sure to grab attention. The question "Who's that?" begins each page, with pages featuring the important people, animals and things that make up a baby's world. From Mama and Dada to doggie, birdie and kitty, grandma and grandpa and a lovey, everyone gets a page. And, as I mentioned at the start of this review, with a few pages and simple illustrations, Harris and Rosenberg bring diversity to the page.
