This touching story, by Alison Lester, dives into the world of babies. Each page details a familiar experience that the babies will encounter across their day and as they grow - eating, sleeping, moving. Subtly but significantly the book focuses on the diversity of how each child will encounter those universal experiences. The story at once shows the connections between all people, the bonds we share from babyhood, while also celebrating the rich differences that make us distinct.
The story introduces us to a group of babies. Their cultural backgrounds, or countries of residence, are not explicitly stated but the illustrations subtly convey a sense of ethnic diversity. The pages then introduce a series of experiences that links all babies - such as eating -and show how each of our characters engage in that experience. In this simple way, a powerful message of diversity and tolerance is communicated.
From the bestselling author of KISSED BY THE MOON and IMAGINE comes a book to be cherished by children and parents everywhere.
