MEDIA REVIEWS

"Follow five families and their babies through the first 12 months in a diverse and inclusive celebration of babyhood. Otter-Barry calls it a 21st century answer to the Alhbergs' Baby's Catalogue."

-- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *

"I absolutely love it ... a package of pure joy"

-- Nikki Gamble (Just Imagine) * via Twitter *

"An absolutely gorgeous and inclusive celebration of babies during their first year of life... this book is a delight from cover to cover...there's never a dull moment as Ros's wonderfully detailed, amusing illustrations show (I love the soft toy's thought bubbles). Mary's straightforward narrative has a gentle playfulness with lots of baby sounds and comments from family members."

* Red Reading Hub *

"A really joyful book from a top author-illustrator team tracing the milestones of babies' first twelve months ...The book has delightful endpapers and is expertly designed throughout - a real treasure ...With lots to look at and point to, this diverse and inclusive celebration of babies will be loved by babies, older siblings and grown-ups too."

* Achuka (Book of the Day) *

"Babies, Babies Everywhere is a diverse, and joyful celebration of the lives of six babies and their families...Your own babies, both big and small, will love pouring over the details of Ros Asquith's Ahlberg-esque illustrations which depict a fabulously diverse range of family setups and characters... This book provides a lovely way to reflect with your own child on how they have grown and changed and would also be a great story to use for any child about to become a big sibling..."

* Discover Children's Books *

"This delightful picture book is aimed at younger readers but could be used for thoughtful discussion about different kinds of families and child development with any age group. The simple, straightforward text and beautifully drawn characters convey messages about valuing individual differences in children. No matter what kind of family is bringing up a young child, each is conveyed in a positive way with plenty of laugh out loud moments. I can see this being used with childcare students and expectant parents in ante-natal classes as a way of reassuring them that under ones are always a challenge but mostly a joy to live with, and never ever boring. Strongly recommended. "

* The Letterpress Project *

"What joy is portrayed here, from Hoffman's direct and sensitive text to the delightful pictures throughout by Ros Asquith. Both author and illustrator have banks of highly acclaimed work in the world of children's books, and this new publication will be welcomed in families, nurseries and libraries everywhere."

* Books for Keeps 5-star review *

"An upbeat picture book that's just right for young children who are anticipating or observing a baby in the family and wondering what to expect during the newcomer's first year."
