#BabyLove My Social Life - a bookwrap

Quotes about picture taking...

It's an illusion that photos are made with the camera....they are made with the eye, heart and head.
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

A moment, captured
A detail, remembered
A recollection, visualized
A camera given a soul.

 ~Chris Bruinsma


Authored and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh

Editorial Reviews

"#BabyLove offers a hipster view of contemporary parenting.  Beneath the story of technological trendiness, however, lies a more enduring portrait of nurture and joy." ~ Foreword Clarion Reviews

"A charming modernization of the traditional bedtime tale." ~ Kirkus Reviews

"The illustrations and witty dialogue fit well together, creating a narrative that easily flows and entertains. While some of the content may go over the heads of young children, this book is sure to delight all of the parents who are fortunate enough to read it." - Red City Review

"A clever and entertaining look at raising children in the age of social media... The author's story flows beautifully, and her illustrations are brightly colored, cheerful and humorous" - Readers' Favorite

"Adults reading this brightly illustrated book will be nodding their heads in agreement and chuckling over hashtags as one modern baby's day is documented, start to finish." - Kristine Hall 

My Review...

What an adorable book!  What a true-to-life story this charming little read is.  

I have to laugh as I look around and see the excitement, intense engagement, and pure delight parents are having by documenting every move, sneeze, facial expression and happening throughout their baby's day.  Social Media certainly has changed the way we "view" our kids.  

This delightful story, written in perfect rhyme was expressed from the baby's perspective. It is sure to entertain you and bring a smile to your face.  Parents, grandparents, family members, yes, and  even complete strangers via the internet are invited into this babies life to:  favour, like, ogle, and adore the little tike from the time he wakes up until his bedtime. Exhausted from posing and being chased by his mother's paparazzi tendencies all day he snuggles down to get some sleep.  A final flash goes off disturbing his relaxing Feng Shui. Oh no!

The illustrations are simple, colourful and framed with symbols that we can relate to like smartphones, hearts, thumbs-up (like) and other symbolic icons.  

Babies may not understand the storyline but adults will surely relate.  The author offers a humourous, creative book that is both entertaining and smart, one that tech-savvy nurturers and their adorable bundles of joy will enjoy immensely and simply have to have.  

This book is a perfect gift to give to first time parents.  I highly recommend this book.
