High contrast books like this are great to share with babies as they give developing eyes something to focus on. This one expresses the joy of bringing a new family member into the fold as the animals excitedly describe feeding, singing to, tickling and finally, kissing the baby.

High contrast illustrations and a text that encourages caregiver-child interaction makes this a perfect book to share with a very young baby!

We love this book in our household!
Such a sweet little story, and beautiful high contrast illustrations that babies love.
We read it several times a week at bedtime.

What a wonderful book for a household with a new baby!

One of my favorite books for babies and toddlers. It's a great example of taking turns listening and speaking when having a conversation, although when I read it aloud, I play on the one-upmanship that seems to happen in the story to add some humor. The illustrations are bold and clear and the text is sweet. Love, love, love Mary Murphy's books!

An SCL staff favourite, but especially so around Mother's Day!

This is my daughter's favourite book, and has been since I brought it home when she was about five months old. The white-on-black pictures really grab her attention and she gets really excited whenever we open it up for her. The excuse to give her a great big kiss at the end is a lot of fun too!
