Baby Bonanza: Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers and Marla Frazee

Every day, everywhere, babies are dressed--

In diapers and T-shirts, in buntings and sleepers,

In playsuits and dresses, in sweaters and creepers

All dressed up in a brand-new second-born and super-sized board book format, Susan Myers'(Houghton Mifflin, 2011, 2004) is back, its bright-white board pages filled with adorable babies of all kinds, small and tall, playing with their toes or riding in carriers on their dads' backs or fronts, splashing in wading pools and snoozing on top of that enormous teddy bear Uncle Norville sent. There's even a "Baby on Board" window cling included so that everyone will recognize baby's limo.

Caldecott Award winner Marla Frazee's pencil and watercolored illustrations light up Meyers' easy verses with all kinds of babies, all sorts of families, and all types of playmates and admirers as they go through their day. Babies with bunnies, babies at the beach, babies at the mall and on the street, and babies who practice, practice, practice at getting bigger fill each double-page spread.

Every day, everywhere, babies are loved--

For trying so hard, for traveling so far,
for being so wonderful, ...just as they are.

Everywhere Babies will make a great gift for a mother-to-be, a father-to-be, grandparent-to-be, or even a young sibling-to-be. A charming book with much going on on each page to keep youngsters' attention and show the delightful side of a baby in the family.
