From Our Editors

Through a steamy rain forest in Brazil, along a river in Papua New Guinea, across a frozen inlet in the artic, this book takes young children on a far-reaching journey to discover how babies worldwide are carried and what they see from their unique vantage points.

Editorial Reviews

The Bernhards take readers around the world to examine how babies are carried in different cultures. The need to discover ways that mothers can be with their babies, while getting work done at the same time, has motivated a variety of different baby-carrying methods. This book also examines the types of work that the mothers are engaging in. In the mountains of Guatemala, mothers wrap their babies in shawls about their bodies while they prepare the day''s meals. Meanwhile, a mother living in the Arctic region holds her baby in her big hood as she kneels to ice-fish. For readers interested in more information on the cultures of the peoples presented here, short introductions to each culture are presented at the back of the book.
