A beautiful new baby book

This book is great for many reasons. The first is that it shows diversity in a very good light. The characters in the book are not white, middle class Americans. However, they are shown in a positive light. This will help to bring diversity to a classroom without being over dramatic about it. Secondly, the book is about welcoming a new baby to the world. I think this book would help students that are experiencing a new addition to their family. This might be a brother, sister, niece, or grandson [...]

I didn't love the illustrations (the people often looked weirdly flat to me -- I think it was an intentional illustration style, but it didn't work for me), but I like all the sensory language of the poetry (sun-sparkle and moonlight, rain-swept earth, the sticky joy of peanut butter, the warm circle of your daddy's arm, the squeaky surprise of a yellow ducky -- including various senses, indoors and outside, actions the baby takes and actions taken on/around the baby). And I appreciate the mom a [...]

"Welcome, Precious" by Nikki Grimes was okay. I enjoyed it in that it portrayed an African-American family in a positive light - just enjoying their child, and I believe that it's very important for my daughter to view those types of scenes. However, as I was reading it to my daughter, I noticed the language was a bit "over-her-head." I mean, while the words were simple, there were too many to go with just the one picture, and they did not call for the reader to be interactive at all. I think th [...]

Nikki Grimes's gentle text is like a love letter to newborns coming into our world. And why wouldn't this make a nice bedside nursery read-aloud as an early experience between parent's and baby?But more than this possibility is an opportunity to see the world through the lens of beauty and opportunity. And what better place to introduce this sentiment to the whole family than those early read-aloud experiences. Collier's paintings are simply gorgeous. . w. . .who do I know that is getting ready [...]

I have a criteria for rating baby board books based on different plus points mainly from my son's perspective. For this book, however, I rated high for myself. The illustrations are not as eye popping as most baby book illustrations, but they are artistic. appreciable to an adult audience. The verse too is not rhythmic or fast paced enough to keep up with an impatient child, but the words are deep, beautiful and heartfelt.

I feel that this book would be a bit indulgent for a parent to read to a child. For parents, it is touching and sentimental. A perfect time to read this is to a baby. The pictures are lovely for the baby to look at the parent can savor the beauty of the words. For children, I could take it or leave it.

Who doesn't love to tell their newborn baby sweet stories? In fact our babies of all ages should hear this book about the wonders of the world besides the creation of the new human you are reading to. Written by Nikki Grimes, illustrated by Bryan Collier and published by Orchard Books. #PB #bedtime

A cute picture book and a simple story about a young couple who welcomes their new born child into the world. I always like picture books with characters who look like they could be real people and in this book the illustrator uses this type of realism with the illustrations.

This is a wonderful story to read to siblings with a new baby in the family! It is touching and heart felt. Although the illustrations represent an African American family, the words don't specify a specific culture.

The art is really remarkable in this book, and the text is very sweet and hopeful. The last few pages of text were a bit too sentimental for my tastes, but overall I think it's a nice picture book. (I would've given it 3.5 if I could)

Beautiful poem by Nikki Grimes accompanied by Bryan Collier's signature collage illustration style.

I love illustrations by Bryan Collier so I did enjoy this book. There is one awkward illustration with the mom tickling the babyother than that the water color collage was beautiful.

This book is about a family who is welcoming a new baby into their lives. It would be good book for children who have recently had a younger sibling born.Ages 3-5

This was a long poem in book form. It is beuatiful.

A cute story that would make a lovely bedtime tale for a little one. It gives the hope of what the world has to offer and asks that the child only live and be happy.

A baby is welcomed into the world and told of simple pleasures ready to greet him. A fresh approach to a welcome baby book!

Sweet rhymes welcoming baby to the family. Beautiful illustrations, showing brown faces throughout. Love Nikki Grimes!

Welcoming a new baby to the world can be fun, there is so much a new baby gets to learn. Welcome to a world full of of rainbows and wet kisses from grandmom. Welcome to the sun and welcome to the moon. Welcome baby to yummy ice cream and sticky peanut butter. When the day turns to night, now it is time for dreaming. Welcome to dreaming baby and sleep tight. I gave this book a three star rating because it was a good read, the first time but I don't think I would ever read it again. The story was [...]
