Babies on the Go: 04/28/10

Now that Sean and Harriet have a baby cousin they have gotten a little obsessed with babies. I checked out Babies on the Go by Linda Ashman to read to my daughter. It's a picture book about different kinds of animal babies and how the get around.

Each pair of pages shows a different baby animal and a parent. Some babies are learning to walk. Some are riding on the parent's back. Some are carried in the mouth. Some float on the parent's belly and so forth.

The cute illustrations of baby animals help to teach children a variety of different things. Children learn the names of animals, how they move and their basic habitat. At the end of the book they also learn how human parents carry human babies.

Despite all appearances of being an interesting and entertaining book, not too dissimilar from books Harriet has loved, she only wanted to read it one time. Perhaps news of her own baby cousin is all she wants right now.

Smiley liked this book but didn't love it. We found the board book version and only kept it out of the library 2 weeks. We may have found it when he was a little old, 22 months, since the library shelves their board books randomly.

Two weeks out from the library I'd call a success for board book. Most of the time my kids will pick out a pile of books, read most of them once and send them back. It's rare for them to keep a library book to read multiple times.
