A world of being new is waiting for little ones and the grown-ups who love them in this warm and funny book perfect for baby showers. From napping to crying, cuddling to playing, this book introduces the world with humor, honesty, and unmitigated sweetness. Award-winning author and artist Lucy Knisley celebrates the joys of having—and being!—a baby in this timeless celebration of new beginnings and the transformative power of love.
Cartoonist Knisley makes her solo picture book debut with a hearty welcome to the new babies of the world: "Hello, you! You are new. When you're new... what can you do?" Working in a bold graphic design style, she depicts babies of different ages and backgrounds observing and interacting with their environments ("You take baths, wash off the grime, then get cuddled. Cozy time!"). Developmental stages change as the pages turn, and unconventional color combinations render the children with blue, purple, and cherry red hair and bring a friendly, modish aesthetic to the pages. It's a vivacious celebration of new arrivals and the many wonders to explore. Ages 4 6.
