Baby-Toddler–A follow-up to Baby Boy, You Are a Star! this title makes it clear that caregivers, particularly those tending to young black and brown baby girls, have a duty to fill their child with confidence, determination, and “yes-you-can.” Pinkney’s illustrations feature swirling colors highlighting the faces of these small endearing infants and growing children while the text affirms all the wonderful things that babies are and can be.
VERDICT Highly recommended for all collections to shine and celebrate—but not limited to—beautiful brown girls.
