Description

In this love letter to babies and their families, Barbara Reid captures the special joy that a newborn brings to the world.

Welcome, baby, welcome!
All the world is new,
And all the world is waiting
To be introduced to you.

In this essential gift for new parents, celebrated author and illustrator Barbara Reid provides a wonderful celebration of the happiness babies bring to their families. In gentle rhymes, she lists all of the promises and cherished moments parents, grandparents and siblings plan to share with their new bundles of love, and using her trademark Plasticine artwork, Barbara decorates each spread with bright images of babies interacting with their families and the world around them, depicting scenes of simple joy and discovery.

An absolute must-have for the nursery shelf!

Editorial Review

Praise for Barbara Reid:

*"Picture book illustration can, at its finest, transport you right into the heart of a story's emotion and momentum. How anyone can achieve that transmogrification with the lumpish medium of Plasticine is an artistic mystery [but] Toronto-based artist Barbara Reid obviously owns the key." -Quill & Quire, starred review

"Reid's attention to detail ensures that even for adult viewers, there's always something new to notice." -The Toronto Star

"Reid makes the known seem almost startlingly new with her gift for observation, detail and humour." -Canadian Children's Book News
