PB Planet Spotlight: All of Baby, Nose to Toes

Victoria Adler at her Princeton, NJ Barnes & Noble Storytime/Booksigning, 6/30/09.

Big PB Planet applause for All of Baby, Nose to Toes by Victoria Adler, illustrated by Hiroe Nakata (Dial Books for Young Readers, Penguin Young Readers Group, 2009). As the title promises, Adler’s charming children’s debut salutes all of baby’s enchanting elements, with bubbly rhyming accompaniment and “Who loves?” affirmations that make it an ideal cuddle-time read-aloud for little ones, as well as older children in their “I love babies!” phase. Nakata’s adorable illustrations capture the pudgy perfection of the curious baby as she uses ears, eyes, nose, etc., to explore her world. (In particular, Nakata's “plump little tummy” spreads are simply smoochable!) Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today.
