Littles Review

    More for caregivers or new parents than for young readers--although they might like looking back at how much they've grown, this picture book celebrates little ones. In rhyming text, the author describes how much love is showered on newborns and little boys and girls as they learn how to crawl and eat. Each line of the text and each illustration is filled with much love and a reminder that just about everyone who encounters those little ones loves them while they are little. The last page is rat More for caregivers or new parents than for young readers--although they might like looking back at how much they've grown, this picture book celebrates little ones.

The last page is rather poignant since it remarks on the fleeting nature of time and how fast youngsters grow and features four children, no longer little, climbing onto a school bus. Not only is the story charming, but the author and illustrator have included a baby photograph of themselves when they were little.

    When my youngest was a toddler, her favorite books (after Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?) were those featuring babies and jaunty rhymes. This is another loving tribute to babies, illustrated with a diverse cast that makes me smile. Add this to your cuddly read aloud sessions, or to your baby shower gift book list.New parents will be reminded not to blink...babies grow quickly and before you know it they are boarding a school bus, or in my case, graduating from college.

    This isn't a mind blowing book, but it's SO super cute! Diverse babies, diverse families, diverse facial expressions, diverse emotional reactions... this book manages to cover just about everything very succinctly. Great for babies who want to see other babies and baby faces, great for new parents who will probably weep at that last page, and ok for new older siblings who need some books with ideas of what to expect from a new baby (though other books are better for that purpose).

    Shades of 10 Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, Little is a poetic story that shows the similarities and a few of the differences in infants in different families. Littles is illustrated by AG Ford who chooses to show a mother nursing, a biracial couple and a same sex couple as part of the images in the book. With focus mainly on infants, it might be a better fit for home versus school collections.

    In this sweet lullaby-style picture book, author Kelly DiPucchio conveys how loved Littles are and how quickly they become toddlers. Incorporating several family types and a diverse collection of ethnicities, this book not only ensures a child knows they are loved but it also helps every child realize they are special and worthy of that love.

    Toddlers love books with babies and this one is sure to be a favorite with the really youngest of readers. Adorable illustrations of babies and their great diversity of families all engaged in familiar activities. A nice rhyming text accompanies the pictures and reminds the readers that babies grow up way too fast.

    Kelly DiPucchio shows how we cherish littles and caring for them as they grow. Beautifully written and illustrated. As a mom, I was a little teary at the end thinking of my own kids.

    Cute, rhymey, a bit schmaltzy though, which I only handle so well. I appreciate the diversity and really love the image of the lesbian couple with an adopted baby. It's worth purchasing for that one image alone.Definitely the book to gift a new set of parents at a baby shower.
