Description

An adorable baby discovers the world around him.

A little baby has found his hands, his tiny toes, his lovely voice, and his sweet nose—what else will he find in his world, his cozy, wonder-filled world? Heather Leigh’s spare, rhythmic text combines with Geneviève Côté’s warm and inviting illustrations for a delightful picture book that explores all of the adorable traits that make a baby special—and how those traits might shape a baby as he grows up to be a unique little person.

Editorial Reviews

"With a melodic and motherly voice, this gentle and captivating picture book welcomes a little baby into the world.... A lovely choice for new babies and their parents."

--Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2012


"A baby is warmly welcomed to the world by his doting parents, who fantasize about what he will be able to do as he grows.... Softly hued mixed-media illustrations reveal several possibilities...while the pictures show what the child might do with his nose, feet, mouth, and voice as he develops. Children will enjoy seeing what the growing child may accomplish and how his abilities compare with theirs."

School Library Journal, March 2012


“The narrative is well-paced and works nicely with the rounded, muted illustrations, making for a gentle read-aloud for the youngest child. Use this as a conversation starter with preschoolers expecting a new baby sibling, or as an opportunity for prereaders to bring their own imaginative narrative to the illustrations.”

Booklist, March 15, 2012


"What will you find in this marvelous world?" asks debut author Leigh in this celebration of a new arrival…. The pleasures…[Geneviève Côté] imagines her hero growing into are simple, familiar ones—first love, splashing in puddles, encounters with cute wildlife—and the combination of her sunny palette and graceful black outlining gives each page an open-hearted exuberance. And seldom has the mother of a newborn looked so soigné.”
