Review Quotes




"Children deserve to see the rich diversity of their lives and the world in which they live reflected in the books around them." -- Cooperative Children's Book Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"A lovely portrait of kindness without borders." --Publishers Weekly

"This multilingual board book greets children in eight languages as it makes its way around the globe over the course of a day. Airy lines, a patchwork of patterns, and splashy colors create a mood of carefree energy in each city: 'Bom dia, mundo (Good morning, world), ' offers a Brazilian baby as it crawls across a sandy Rio beach, the statue of Christ the Redeemer towering over the landscape in the distance. In Egypt, a woman wearing a Cairo T-shirt and hijab holds up her daughter, as though readers are a guest in their home: 'Marhabaan "asdiqa". (Hello, friends).' Although the languages aren't identified, only the cities, it's a lovely portrait of kindness without borders. Up to age 5." --Publishers Weekly

"Babies-PreS-Babies and their families greet neighbors and friends throughout the day in New York, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, London, Paris, Cape Town, Cairo, Beijing, and Tokyo. The final spread has a papa bidding his baby "Nite nite!" in San Francisco. Fun digital collage landscapes grace each spread along with the standard greetings (and translations). A fun way to introduce different parts of the world and the universality of baby love around the globe." --School Library Journal

"A cheery board book to reinforce the oneness of babykind." --Kirkus Reviews

"Good for babies, but can also be very educational for older toddlers. And like all good bedtime books, it ends with a baby sleeping! --My Sweet Sleeper
