Babies are cared for and loved by their families from the moments immediately following birth (“First cry. First meal. First burp. Warm feel.”), on through a series of physical and developmental milestones of their first year in this pleasing picture book. First smiles, laughter, and teeth are followed by crawling, walking, and words. The year of babies’ firsts culminates in a first birthday celebration. A diverse cast of families and a succinct rhyming text lovingly capture many of the highs and some of the lows (dirty diapers, parental exhaustion) of welcoming a newborn into the home. (Ages 1–4)
