Synopses & Reviews
Babies love looking at other babies, and this concept book will allow them to do just that! Each page features a back-and-white photograph of a baby interacting with an object that starts with the featured letter of the alphabet. The object is in color, and coordinates with the color of the letter featured, making the connection easy and understandable for non-readers. The diverse cast of babies and recognizable object make this book the perfect introduction to the alphabet.
"New York City based photographer Donenfeld makes her children's book debut with an alphabet book that pairs grayscale photographs of adorable diaper-clad babies with colorful props that correspond to each letter. On the B page, a baby stands warily in a pair of bright yellow rain boots. Elsewhere, another baby gnaws on an inflatable globe (for E, as in Earth), and a third pokes experimentally at a rainbow-colored xylophone. The variety of poses and situations, along with the babies' beaming smiles, should easily hold the attention of the very young. Simultaneously available: Baby 123. Up to age 2."
