Babies love looking at babies, and this welcome board book on cradle board–shaped pages features photographs of ten beautiful babies from ten different American Indian tribes, each one engaged in a typical cradle-board related activity (peeking, touching, crying, yawning, etc.). Each baby’s tribal affiliation is identified on a final page spread that explains: “Generations of Native American mothers have carried their babies in cradle boards and they are still used by many tribes today. Each cradle board is personalized and they vary from tribe to tribe.” (Ages birth–3)
