Photographer Vicky Ceelen couples photos of human babies and animal babies in a captivating wordless board book. Ceelen cleverly pairs babies in similar poses—a teething toddler is matched with a toothy rabbit, and a sprawled-out sleeping newborn is positioned next to a toes-splayed and tummy-down toad. From tiny tongues poking out to little fingers covering mouths, the human and animal babes are shown as perfect complements of each other. Pastel borders frame the eleven photo duets, offering gentle contrast to the infant close-ups. Little ones will love looking at these babies of all sizes and species. (Ages birth–2)
