   Adorable book. Got it for a friend's newborn baby
The book is also being sold at a discounted price. It was for a friend's newborn baby. The book is of high quality and is a great present for a mom to be.

   Boring for baby and oddly ableist
The pictures are lovely, and the concept of all the little babies everywhere having things in common as well as beautiful differences was the reason I bought it. However, there is no story and my baby is bored by it. I, on the other hand, found the book awkward — the rhythm of some of the text is off, and by still focusing on the body as a place of sameness the meaning is oddly uncharacteristic. Like many babies, there are plenty who have limb differences and by placing them on the same level, the book ends up leaving children out. Instead of reading this book, I recommend "Everywhere Babies" by Susan Meyers, where the many different babies are all cared for and loved similarly.

   Great book slight annoyance that the ending
It was the biggest and best-selling book of all our board books. Very few pages, very few illustrations, and the book is tall. It's great to see such a strong product, said Dr. Scott Dixon, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. My daughter absolutely loves having it read to her. The cadence is very good, Mr. D'Antonio said. But the book also shows how diverse kids are. I kid raps about how some kids dont have CON My one and only beef is the end verse. The next time a baby was born, it was truly divine. He also appears to have ten little fingers, ten little toes and three little kisses on nose. They would not say if we were gay. It should read: "Warning: This is a scam." It's always weird to me. It just changes when I read loud, I guess. You can't be gender neutral if you don't know the gender or trying to be gender neutral. Basic English is the second language spoken in the United States. It is, therefore, a non-living object.

   It’s okay
This book was highly recommended on the "what to expect" app, not the greatest or most interesting, but ok for baby read every once in a while.

   Love this book!
I've read all the books by Mem Fox and I'm a huge fan. It's just that I always buy this book to give as a present to new babies. It's great to be back home with my family, read to all my grandchildren. It is a great read for both the adult reader and the young listener. It is a nice size for toddlers, is sturdy and holds up well under their use," said Dr. Chester Floyd, Royal Solomon's chief executive. It should be in every baby's library.

   Good buy!
The book is larger and heavier than I had anticipated. It's a good read, and it was worth the money spent on it.

   All parents/grandparents should have this book!
I give it to every expecting mother I know. Several have them on hand just in case. It beautifully depicts the diversity and love that every mother has for her child all around the world. The happy ending to the story of a pregnant woman's love story will leave her child with the special bond that the expectant mother will have for her child. A beautiful book, said Gillian.

   Disappointed
The front cover was scuffed up, making it difficult to read. However, I think the book is cute and will be fine for now because my baby is still very small but when he gets a bit older I'll need to explain to him that actually not all babies have 10 fingers and 10 toes. I appreciate the message the book is trying to get across but it becomes problematic when considering children born with different amounts of fingers and toes as well.

   Must Have Baby Book
The fifth nominee for fiction is James McBride, best known for his work on "The Blair Witch Project." The fact that he really likes looking through the pictures really appeals to me. It's been mostly a month since we've been reading it. The whole thing is a super cute and lovely rhyme. If you're planning a baby shower or just want to improve your baby registry, this book is going to be one of your go-to books. It's also great to have that extra bit of padding. It has a great little monkey on the shoulder.
