“When she takes my hand / and begins to sing / I love her more / than / anything.” (“Grandma” by Prince Redcloud) A hefty board book anthology features 30 short poems for babies and toddlers arranged into sections titled Food, Family, Firsts, Play, and Bedtime. Most of the poems feature the strong rhythm and rhyme typical of poems and verse for the very young. The bright, cheerful illustrations, which are sweet leaning toward precious, feature personified animal families. (Ages birth–2)
