    One thought on “Everywhere Babies”

    1. An adorable book that just makes me feel happy and long to hear a baby giggle :-) Meyers uses few words in a lyrical fashion to portray lots of things that babies "everywhere" do. The illustrations by Marla Frazee are a pure delight--I am really a fan of her work after having read and loved All the World and the same warmth, humor and attention to detail are present here. The only "downside" to this book, IMO, is that the "everywhere" seems to only include industrialized nations both in terms of [...]

    2. Thiiiiiiiis is a great example of how to show diversity in a way that isn't in-your-face, preachy, or just wrong. It's a book filled with different kinds of families, just doing what they do every day and not pointing out the ways in which they stand out or are different from what's considered a "normal" family-this picture book illustrates the way we should be able to live. I don't pretend to be an expert on what's best for LGBT+ or other diverse families, but it's nice to have a book that does [...]

    3. We love this book! I'm all about teaching diversity and this book has it! The illustrations are detailed and incredibly beautiful, so it makes a fun seek-and-find game with littler kids as well.Everywhere Babies shows diversity in babies and how they are cared for and loved by their families. There are babies in slings, cribs, cradles, carriers, backpacks, arms, car seats and bucket carriers. There are babies being breastfed and babies fed with bottles and baby food. Even the families are divers [...]

    4. This is a keeper! It goes through a baby's first year beginning at "every day, everywhere, babies are born." The illustrations are lovely. They show babies of many races. Every day, everywhere they are playing, eating (one is being breast fed), being kissed, carried, and cuddled. Each page shows several babies along with parents, siblings and friends. The two women may be a lesbian couple, or they may be friends; similarly the two men. It's up to the parent to explain the picture the way he or s [...]

    5. Marla Frazee is hands-down one of my favorite children's book illustrators, and she does not disappoint in Susan Meyers' Everywhere Babies. Frazee shows different ethnicity and lifestyles, like a mosaic. I can never get over how authentic the people look and how real the world is around them. Love it.

    6. If you are looking for a book about babies look no further than EVERYWHERE BABIES. Susan Meyers perfectly captures the universality of baby-hood, while embracing unique differences. It is a balancing act for sure, but she handles it with rhythm and grace. "Every day, everywhere, babies are born - fat babies, thin babies, small babies, tall babies, winter and spring babies, summer and fall babies." She follows them as they are loved, dressed, fed, and gradually explore their world. Her beautiful [...]

    7. "Everywhere Babies" is written delightfully, with an easy and playful rhythm. It's lends itself well to reading fast or slow as needed. All you parents know that sometimes you need a book you can blaze through and sometimes you need one that'll linger without too much work. This can actually do both jobs.The art is excellent. Each, energetic, lifelike drawing is filled with the love, chaos, and humor of life with a baby. The pictures aren't just realistic, they feel real. From the exhausted nurs [...]

    8. I love how this book features all kinds of families, not just man/woman parents, and not just white people. The pages are nice and big and can take some punishment. My son prefers to have this read to him no less than once a day

    9. Great rhythm and rhyme with sweet subjects on each page. Wonderful illustrations. A must read for your little one.

    11. Sham's mom signed A up for the Stuart Brent Children's Book Club for Christmas and every month she gets a book or two. This was last month's and we are all obsessed. The illustrations are beautiful on top of being diverse and inclusive. I cried the first time reading it because one year, babies, family. Decided we are definitely giving this to others as a consistent gift.

    12. I adore this book and recommend it to all parents. The diversity of illustrations and the delight it takes in babyhood are absolute perfection. I have not made it through once without choking up at the last page out of love for my little baby.

    13. This is a big hit for us. I like the diversity of many sorts subtly featured in the book, and my toddler loves the pictures of everything - it's fun for him to find the cats or cars or bears throughout. We both like the illustration style a lot and the text has a good rhythm when read out loud.

    14. modak loved the book. He searchs baby sliding,papa's hand,baby giggling,baby crying and saying her "baby no cry"he enjoys turning the pages and watching the pictures.a lovely book for my baby

    15. My toddler always laughs everytime i read this book to her (especially when we reached the last page showing the illustration of a baby making a mess while she ate) I think this is a book every child can relate to 😊 love the illustrations

    16. We read this book almost every night before bed. Iris loves to look at all the different babies. I didn't realize that babies like to look at pictures of babies, who knew? They are very cute. I love Marla Frazee's illustrations (see also - All the World).

    17. A great book to read to kids about babies from families of all shapes and sizes. Overall a great and inclusive book!

    18. Your baby will NOT sit through a reading of this book. Simplistic text but the illustrations are too "fancy-schmancy" for little ones. File this under "Good Idea that didn't pan out".

    19. A touching, beautifully illustrated message of love, respect, and inclusion. I tear up at the final pages every time.

    20. Read this book just for the marvelous illustrations. The detail in the illustrations really show the real diversity in the world in which we live in.

    21. “Everyday, everywhere, babies are born ~”So begins this celebration of babies of all shapes, sizes, and dispositions. Each two page spread features a different action or trait shared by babies all over the world. Sleeping, playing, eating, making friends, and growing. The book begins with the birth and ends with the babies learning to crawl and walk. The final pages show a baby’s first birthday and a very messy baby eating birthday cake.The text and the illustrations are beautifully interw [...]
