Babies: David Bedford
How can you not fall in love with these meerkat babies? Those enormous eyes caught me right up!
Babies by David Bedford with illustrations by Leonie Worthington is charming and whimsical. Fact and fiction mix to create a fun exploration of baby animals. Sure "Crocodile babies...know how to bite," and "Fox babies...stay up all night," but your tot will enjoy the pacifiers, maracas, and tambourines included in the illustrations. The bit of fancy is fun!
Flaps add another level of intrigue on each stiff-paged spread. I'm just really charmed by the illustrations, and I know you will be, too. Yay for Little Hare Books, Australia, and Trafalgar Square Publishing!
