The very things all parents admire in their babies are the things interesting babies the most: their bodies. This board book pictures a baby and mother who could be almost any race or ethnicity and celebrates “perfect arms and perfect lips / and tiny fingers / and perfect hips... perfect feet and twinkling toes / with tiny ears / and a perfect nose.” Babies and toddlers always enjoy having various parts of their bodies named. This can be done even more affectionately than usual while this book is shared. (Ages 6-18 months)
