Unwrapping the book

Rhyming similes, cut- paper collage art, and a parade of the cutest diverse babies ever.... makes this book delightful.  "Love You Head to Toe" will warm hearts as young readers engage in this adorable book that compares newborn babes with similar actions and antics of baby animals.  

The illustrations are masterpieces.  Created from cut-paper they are bright, expressive and playful.  They equate the sweet infants to a starfish, a kitten, a duckling, a penguin, a cheeky monkey, a sleepy hippo, a little otter baby and my most favourite - a hedgehog baby, just to name a few.  

"You're my little hedgehog baby,
When I wipe your bum,
Curled up in a hedgehog ball,
Until the cleanup's done."  

The story moves along powered by actions verbs and documents a day in the life of a baby from morning until bedtime.   Love for precious babies ooze from parents to their sweet bundles of joy letting them know that they are a treasure and a gift to be cherished always.  The book would be perfect to share at bedtime wrapped in a cuddle and a lovely gift to give to new parents when their new baby arrives to grace their family and home.  Highly recommended.
