"Enchanting. . . . A rich, heavenly treat."-- School Library Journal
"Toddlers will pore over these images again and again. No candy is sweeter than these scrumptious babies in all of their delicious colors."-- Kirkus Reviews
Bubbling brown sugar bubbles Baby's belly. Syrupy sweet sticky center shakes like a bowl of jelly.
Oooh, baby! This board book is sweet enough to eat. Infants, toddlers, and their older siblings will drool as they rejoice in the beauty of brown babies. Here, carob cherubs show all their true colors--everything from peanut butter to honey to cinnamon spice. Expressive photos and a mouthwatering rhyme encourage babies to find splendor in the many hues of their own skin.
