saw it as anFirst Reads the cover was just so beautiful, too, and the description hinted that the message inside would be lovely also.I am thoroughly delighted with this book The illustrations, watercolor I think, are simply stunning, several levels above what your typical children s book geared for this age would have The illustrations within the book of the outside world are almost impressionistic in nature, and the illustrator has employed different types of strokes to evoke different movements, like the wind, and to evoke the readers emotions and wonder at the natural world I found the skies to be stunning The colors go from pastels tobright colors, too, so young readers will have a variety of tones and textures to draw their eyes The scenes inside the home are lovely as well, but not quite as dramatic and beautiful as the outside scenes.The backdrop of the story is that parents are telling their child about what the newest human on the planet might be experiencing What does that child see, smell, hear, etc Does he or she see the moon and stars the love of their parents reflected back to them The questions about senses could make this book so interactive if you read it with a child and ask the same questions I love books that engage both the adult and young reader, and this book does both on several levels with the gorgeous pictures and multi part message within the text The book is simply beautiful to look at, and the message about familial and parental love is gently expressed in several different ways If you have a young child in your life, you and he or she may enjoy looking at and reading this book together Hello, friends Our book today is World So Wide, written by Alison McGhee and illustrated by Kate Alizadeh, a tender ode to new families

So Wide, written by Alison McGhee and illustrated by Kate Alizadeh, a tender ode to new families and the joy of welcoming a baby.Somewhere in the world so wide, there is a person who is the youngest person alive and once upon a time, it was you Addressing the reader directly, the narration describes all the firsts that a child experiences the first things they see, feel, hear, smell, etc as illustrations watch a father and mother introduce their own little one to the world around him Perhaps the most incredible firsts are the feelings felt as a family grows and loves, and perhaps one day, that little person will grow to experience the joys of parenthood themselves.Heartwarming This sweet and gentle look at one extended family is soft and comforting in tone, both visually and in the text Minimal, serene free verse wraps around the reader like a warm blanket, making for a comforting read The illustrations are colorful yet equally calm, switching between pleasant scenes of family outings, homey moments, and closeups of the baby and his parents bonding I particularly liked the visuals of the ending, in which the baby has grown into a father himself the new father is seemingly a single parent and sports an earring and vaguely alternative hairstyle It s a nice, subtle way of showing that families come in all shapes and sizes his own parents are a mixed race couple The length was great, and JJ enjoyed the soothing story A lovely look at the bond between parents and their babies, and it s Baby Bookworm approved Note A copy of this book was provided to The Baby
