A gentle, joyous offering."--Booklist,starred review

The book is very simple with simple illustrations showing kids from different cultures and parts of the world and highlighting how while we might all look different and do things differently, we all remain similar and the same.
I am a father of a 3-year-old and we have read this book since she was about 18 months. Always brings smiles to everyone reading.

What I really love about this book is the diversity of babies represented, lots of different nationalities.
