Beautiful Babies

I really enjoyed Karma Wilson's Beautiful Babies. It's a touch-and-feel board book with a fun theme: babies--baby animals to be exact. What's more fun than 'petting' baby animals? Simple text accompanies the pictures. "In the spring when things turn green, many babies can be seen..." I really like the inclusion of the mirror at the end of the book. "But none are as sweet as baby You! Oh, you beautiful baby!" Mirrors are something that (many) babies just find fascinating. So this one is cute and fun.

Thanks for the suggestion. Our little guy LOVES mirrors at the ends of books (we have all of Nina Laden's board books like that - reviewed on our site if you're interested). He developed a habit of kissing the mirror at the end every time. Luckily they're not library books. :)
