about

"An animal cast so elated that they seem on the verge of jumping into readers' laps. . . . The high-contrast pictures and exclamatory text are guaranteed eye and ear magnets for the littlest ones." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"I saw the baby! 
Did you see the baby?"
"Yes! I saw the baby, the teeny weeny thing."

It's so exciting! News of the baby is buzzing from animal to animal, with each one — fish, bird, squirrel, insect, frog — boasting of seeing, feeding, singing to, tickling, and kissing the tiny little thing. With bold, graphic black-and-white illustrations, Mary Murphy's simple, singsong story captures the giddy commotion that only a baby can bring.
Mary Murphy is the author and illustrator of a number of children’s books, including HOW KIND!. I KISSED THE BABY!, she says, "is about how excited everyone is to welcome a new baby into the community. It’s best read, like a nursery rhyme, by whomever is holding Baby at the time." She lives in Galway, Ireland.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 1st Book For both our girls this was their first book. They both loved it and it's been my 'go to' baby gift for all newborns and their parents. Black and White is ideal for babies. It's just a sweet, fun book to read.
