Babies Don't Walk, They Ride! by Kathy Henderson and Lauren Tobia (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

 March 2016, Templar, 24 pages, Hardback, Review copy 

Content: humour 

Book summary
Babies don’t walk; they ride. Babies don’t run; they glide. Little ones will love spotting themselves in this book full of babies — being carried around, tossed in the air, riding in strollers, and whizzing around the supermarket in carts.

Nayu's thoughts  
I knew there were a lot of ways babies get around, but I'd never given it much thought just how many ways there are. Each way suits the needs of the family involved – there's more than one way to wear a sling and more than 1 type of buggy. I imagined what happened next and how the characters lived outside of the scenes, the illustrations enticed me to ponder before turning over the page. Definitely a book to reread and spot different things and create different stories from! 

Suggested read
Another fun tale about babies is A New Baby Story: Aren't You Lucky? by Catherine and Laurence Anholt (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)
