A perfect gift for new parents, grandparents, caregivers, or siblings, this evocative picture book celebrates the boundless, universal love that a baby brings into the world.
The birth of a new baby brings joy and profound meaning into its family and the world around them. An ordinary day in the lives of four diverse families is made extraordinary by the love their newest family member both gives and inspires. Readers will see a reflection of their own caring relationships in Leslie Staub’s joyful writing and Lori Nichols’s brilliant, shining illustrations. This inspirational book is an ode to the tender love that babies give and receive and reminds families everywhere always to make time to cherish and love each other.
“A picture-book celebration of babies and their individuality. Smooth cartoon illustrations with stardustlike detailing depict… characters (recurring) throughout the book, the ever present sparkles emphasizing the title’s ‘shine.’ This family diversity contributes to the picture book’s success, making it stand apart from a surfeit of titles about beloved babies. Warm and bright.” — Kirkus Reviews
