Review: You're My Little Baby by Eric Carle

A Touch and Feel Book
by Eric Carle
Little Simon
Board Book
14 pages
ages 0 to 3

AUGUST 25th!!!

From beloved author-illustrator Eric Carle comes this brand-new interactive board book that features sweet text about baby love and touch-and-feel elements throughout!

You’re my little bear cub
Both playful and shy
You’re my little baby bird
Together we will fly

Loving parents throughout the animal kingdom dote on their little babies in this sweet novelty book perfect for showing a baby how they are loved, whether by a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other caring figure in a child’s life.

With Eric Carle’s classic and colorful artwork and tender text that rhymes, this book is a perfect addition to every Eric Carle collection!



This is one of those books, which will make young listeners smile and feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Various animal pairs, always a large one (parent/guardian) and a baby, are presented on each page with the words "You're my little...". Then there's a cute rhyming phrase, which shows how/why they are loved. While it's super sweet to see the loving relationship between these animals, the message to the listener is clear, too—you are loved. 

Animal lovers will enjoy running through the various creatures, and two of them include a flap to open and reveal a surprise underneath. Each illustration is bright and cheerful. The medium used changes a little, allowing textures to flow in with the colors. According to the description, there are also elements to 'feel', but since I received an e-format, I didn't get a chance to discover this aspect.

This is a lovely book for parents, grandparents, or any guardian to cuddle up on a cushion with their little one to read. It displays love and warmth, and is sure to bring a hug at the end.
