Review: Move by Elizabeth Verdick, Marjorie Lisovskis


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

Amazing babies are on the move in this lively board book that celebrates all the joyful ways babies propel themselves and interact with the world. Push, baby, push! Look how strong you are. Climb, baby, climb! You are going far. Babies, parents, and care providers will all enjoy this bouncy, spirited book.
Happy Healthy Baby series
What can baby do today? Move . . . and reach, play, eat, cuddle, and rest. Busy babies grow healthy and strong as they move about, discovering the many things they can do! Appealing photographs and whimsical illustrations capture the moments and moods of baby’s day; rhythm and rhyme hold baby’s attention. As the books are shared with them, babies absorb concepts of love, safety, and confidence. These sturdy-format books reflect what every parent wants: a happy, healthy baby. A perfect gift for baby showers, newborns, and birthdays.

MY TAKE:
If you have a new baby in the house, you might be interested in this book.

In Move, rhymes about the different ways that babies can move (push, scoot, etc.) are paired with cute, simple illustrations and pictures of babies. There are also movement tips at the end of the book for parents to read through.

This is a nice book to read to your baby, even if they might not quite understand what the words mean yet. At the very least, they'll be entertained by the pictures of the babies and they may get the context of the words based on the drawings.

The tips at the end are actually pretty useful for young parents, so there's something for the parents here too after they finish reading to their kids.

Thanks to NetGalley and Free Spirit Publishing for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. The illustrations are cute and help show what the words mean to the baby.
  2. The babies in the photographs are adorable.
  3. The tips at the end are helpful for new parents.

THE BAD:

  1. The photos don't always match the rhymes.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Scoot, baby, scoot!
READ IT IF:

  1. You are a new parent.
  2. You are looking for a book to read to your baby.
