"'Wherever they are born, girls are beautiful, strong, bold, and bright,' opens this board book from the nonprofit Global Fund for Children, which follows the organization's American Babies and Global Babies. Bright, up-close photographs of babies from around the world are labeled with their respective nations. The babies' smiling faces and bright-colored clothing (which ranges from everyday jumpers to, in the case of one Russian child, a fur suit) are attention-grabbing, and the overall message ('Baby girls can grow up to change the world') is empowering. Up to age 3." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
