Editorial Reviews

In a charming addition to the Local Babies series, McKeon sings the praises of the baby life in Brooklyn, N.Y., incorporating light fodder for discussions about the seasons, shapes, letters, and more. Lemay is careful to reflect the borough's ethnic diversity, with parents and children of many different backgrounds shown, and her references are nothing if not current: the Barclay Center's distinctive brown facade can be spotted in the corner of a transportation-focused scene, while 'foodie' babies check out the offerings at what's clearly the Smorgasburg market in another.
