Baby Parade

Named a Best Book for Babies!
Baby Parade, illustrated by Susie Poole. Albert Whitman, 2013

“Here come the babies. It's a baby parade!”

 "By the end, they are walking in full baby parade, their round faces dot-eyed like Gyo  Fujikawa's classic kewpies, with easy, repeating text and soft, lively watercolors to celebrate them."
--The New York Times

“This book is a great choice for anyone who's ever felt like they deserved a parade.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This sweet picture book taps into two things babies love: other babies and waving…Share this at toddler storytimes for lots of waves and smiles.”

“A simple tale involving colors and movement. Vibrantly illustrated spreads show a diverse variety of babies wearing different colors and patterns, traveling to a picnic in a park.”
