Babies at play are featured in this journey around the world.
This new addition to the popular Global Babies series of board books features engaging photos and simple text geared to grab baby’s attention. With a playtime theme throughout, each captivating photo features a child having fun, interacting with their environment or with a favorite recognizable toy. From a baby with a soccer ball in South Korea to tots sharing a puzzle in India, the subjects reflect diverse cultures and ethnicities from all over the globe as well as a wide variety of activities. The name of the country where the photo was snapped is featured prominently on the page in colorful bold text, though save for Peru, locales are not obvious from the pictures. Each double-page spread reproduces one photo within a colorful frame with the opposite photo taking up the entire page. Simple rhythmic phrases are interspersed for gentle, lighthearted reading. For the youngest readers, seeing the faces of other babies will stimulate their social curiosity and interest, and caregivers will have many opportunities to point out details in the photos. The book encourages readers to “learn about the world” and tells them “it’s time to play!”
Babies everywhere love to play, and the very youngest readers will find worlds of fun in this book.
