Everywhere Babies

Post by Alysa
Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers, illustrated by Marla Frazee

This is my new favorite board book. Let me say, first, that I love Marla Frazee! Her illustrations are just adorable -- and it can be tough to draw those weird little animals known as babies.

Susan Meyers has done a great job with the text, too. Honestly, it makes me happy to be a mom. Like, "It's ok, babyhood and motherhood are happening everywhere! Life is great!"

As an added bonus, the book is laid out so that it has a larger kind of idea-phrase at the top of the page, and the smaller text that follows rhymes. This is genius, because I can read whole thing to Benjamin if he's in the mood, or just the top titles for when he's feeling impatient.

Recommended for moms and babies. . . everywhere! (cheesy grin)
