Look Around, Baby!
Written by Jorge Uzon
Publication Date October 01, 2010
The second in a beautifully photographed series of four board books showing us the major stages in a baby's first year
This beautifully photographed series of four board books shows us the major stages in a baby's first year -- the first day, sitting, crawling and walking. Because the images are shot by the baby's own photographer-father, we see a very intimate portrait of this baby's world -- something an outsider could never capture. Mother, father and big brother also appear.
These books will fascinate babies, who love to look at other babies. They will also be of great interest to older siblings and even new parents, who can see what is to come or enjoy memories of earlier phases. In Look Around, Baby! the young baby gazes at the world, sits up and begins to play and to interact with his older brother.
