PB Review: Hello Baby!

My son received this book as a gift last year. I'm not normally drawn to straight, realistic collage illustration such these by Steve Jenkins. After many slow reads with my son, the book and art have grown on me. It's a simple story, sort of an exploration of baby animals that ties back to a human baby. Mem Fox's light text reads aloud so well, and the illustrations are large and focused on just the animals. You really get a chance to lose yourself in the details here.
