Love You Head to Toe – Hardcover
This is the hardcover version. A board book version is available.
An endearing read-aloud that compares babies to other newborn animals….a delightful African-American children’s book.
Pairing creative rhyming similes with cut-paper collage art Love You Head to Toe is an adorable book that compares newborn babies to baby animals on every page. Bright playful illustrations show a different baby and a different species of animal both engaged in similar behavior: babies stretch their limbs like sea stars splash in the water like ducklings toddle around like bear cubs and fill their chubby cheeks like chipmunks.
Action verbs on each page give the book energy and movement and reflect the varied activities of a baby’s day with key elements like mealtime bath time and bedtime in chronological order. Babies and caregivers of a wide range of ethnicities are represented in this heartwarming read-aloud designed to show little ones how much they are cherished and loved. –
The most obvious strength of the book lies in Ashley’s illustrations-the babies and the baby animals are adorable-but the text is equally strong with a great rhyming structure that makes this both a wonderful book for parents to share with their children and for story time in both libraries and daycares.”–publisher
