Babies from Guatemala, Thailand, Greenland, Mali, India, South Africa, Afghanistan, the USA, Spain and Iraq are shown close up in their precious finery. I know my boys are attracted to the vivid smiles and charming wide-open eyes of these cuties, but I am most struck by the tenderness of the way they are dressed. Some are in regular every-day play clothes but many are in their most colorful and carefully chosen finery. I can't help but see their parent's love and admiration in the ways they are held and presented to the camera. This little gem of a book is one to cherish. The message that children all around the world are beautiful, special and loved comes through loud and clear whether you read the text or just gaze at the photos.
