“Babies arrive by different means, on rickshaws, beasts or submarines, and some, indeed, do come by wing – a bundle of baby, blanket and string – “
Relates where some babies come from as a parent tells a child of the long and strange journey that began with a careless stork and ended with the baby finally reaching home.
Why I like this book: Stunning compositions with stimulating use of contrast – great for young eyes – and tired ones too! The text gets high marks for top-notch readaloudability and humor too. Great gift for new parents!
Read it again, savor it a third time, and after the fifth reading buy a copy for a friend!
