Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great story to share with your little one. Reading together with your child creates memories that last a lifetime. I can still remember sitting by my grandmother, as she sat in her rocking chair by the window, reading “Scat Scat Little Cat”. I don’t remember much of the story, but I remember the time that I spent with my Grandmother and she meant the world to me. I hope to create these special memories with my children by reading to them every chance we get! “Baby, Baby!” is a book that you can read with your tiniest little one and start creating those special moments of your own. “Baby, Baby!” by Diane Stortz is a short rhyming poem about those every day events, a giggle, a nap and even a sneeze, that happen in each baby’s life. Each moment of their day is full of wonder, and this story is a celebration of those everyday moments and ends with a reminder of the biggest wonder of all…that we are ALWAYS loved by God. The message of the story is important for everyone to know. No matter what we do, we are always loved by God. We don’t have to do anything “extraordinary” to receive His love, He loves us just for who we are! The illustrations by are simple, showing a baby doing various every day tasks. I love that it repeats the word Baby. When my children were tiny, they loved anything to do with other babies (and still do). Each activity that the baby does in the story is something that most little ones do every day. As you are reading the book with your baby, have your baby clap and smile and of course be totally selfish and take advantage of kisses and cuddles! Most babies love to look at themselves in the mirror, which is what makes the last two pages of this book very special. The text simply says, “Who does God Love? God loves ________.” Your child is able to see his own face in the mirror and know that we are talking about him, not some random character in a story. The book is incredibly sturdy. We had read the book in the car, and it landed on the floor. I love putting board books through tough tests by putting them through everyday situations that kids will put them through, so I left it there for a little over a week. It was stepped over and on and things were dropped on it. The book is still in great condition. You can see a few marks on the cover, but that’s it. The pages didn’t bend or crease. The mirror is excellent, showing your child’s face clearly with very little distortion that is found in lesser quality books. Is there a message to be found in here for Mom and Dad? Sure there is. One page reads, “Baby reaches. Baby hides.” It made me think of how often we reach for things we shouldn’t and then spend time hiding from ourselves and from God. Perhaps it’s a reach, but it reminds me that God not only loves my baby, He love ME too! “Baby, Baby!” is a fun book that is perfect for sharing with your little one! Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of "Baby, Baby!" in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
