Baby ABC

by Deborah Donenfeld

This is one of my daughter's favorite books right now, probably because she just loves looking at photographs of other babies and is fascinated with her own belly button. The babies are all pictured just in their diapers (except when the illustrated word calls for a piece of clothing) with cute pudgy tummies and belly buttons galore. We get stalled on nearly every page as she pokes the babies' tummies with glee and exclaims "belly! belly!" over and over. Each picture illustrates a letter of the alphabet. The only color on the page is the item the baby holds or wears matching the featured letter (yellow boots for B, blue socks for S, and so on). In contrast the baby himself is black-and-white, which makes the pictures full of interesting contrasts. They're all really cute, too.

Rating: 4/5 ........ 28 pages, 2013
