#BabyLove: My Social Life by Corine Dehghanpisheh (Children's, Picture book, 10/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

July 2015, 36 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Summary from Amazon
"Click." "Tap." Tag and post. An adored baby tells a modern tale about life in today's digital world. #BabyLove: My Social Life highlights the social phenomena of sharing daily activities using technology and social networks.

Nayu's thoughts     
This book is an accurate representation of what life can be for modern babies. It involves a lot of technology, heaps of photos and social network updates about what baby is doing. Everything seems centred on sharing what the baby is doing rather than it's family simply enjoying its presence and exploration of baby's new world. My traditionalist self is countered by understanding how important such photos and updates are for friends and family who can't necessarily be there all of the time. The illustrations are pleasing to look at, and made me think a lot about what friends do with their babies.
