WE LOVE BABIES!

Written by Jill Esbaum
National Geographic Kids (2019)

This adorable picture book with rollicking, rhyming text reads like a crowd-pleasing call, pumping up readers’ excitement for the cutest baby animals ever. Illustrated with lively National Geographic photography, We Love Babies! presents furred, feathered and finned baby animals of all shapes and sizes. Whimsical cartoon cheerleaders add to the fun, popping up throughout the book to lead fans in the irresistible refrain: “We love babies, yes we do, we love babies, how about you?”


“Esbaum brings the littlest listeners an adorable and rollicking read-aloud about animal babies. Bouncy rhymes and spot-on rhythms will delight little ears (‘Paws and claws/and little flippers,/feet that look like fuzzy slippers./Itty-bitty hooves and toes.//Webby footsies?/We love those!’)… Whether taking up a single- or double-page spread or simply placed in circular vignettes whose borders they frequently overflow, these babies will enthrall.” – Kirkus
