A warm and tender welcome to the world!
In a gorgeous picture book that’s playfully sweet and visually captivating, New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr and talented new illustrator Teagan White celebrate the many ways parents make their new babies feel at home.
The world can seem like a big, bewildering place for new babies—fortunately, their mamas know just how to soothe and comfort them. Through enchanting scenes portraying all kinds of mama animals looking out for their little ones, the mother in this story reassures her baby, and young children everywhere, that their caretakers will always love them and keep them safe. This beautiful picture book has the feel of a classic and its heartwarming premise should make it a family favorite.

The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books. This review includes my thoughts on the book, as suitable for children, as well as opinions and thoughts from my two oldest “Baby Girls” (ages 10 and 4) aka the BGs.
One Line: A very cute story. Simple and to the point.
I always love a story where the emphasis is on how special a baby is to their parents. Marr did it in a very cute and simple way. The illustrations were also simple, but had a very classic look to them that adults can appreciate, even if the children can’t exactly. I think Marr captured a lot of the qualities that babies have, especially in the early stages and she does it in a sweet way. I really enjoyed reading this to my kids.
Thoughts from BG1: It was good, very sweet and nice.
Thoughts from BG2: I like the kitten, and the wolf, and the baby. It’s so cute. Read it again!
