Booklist - 04/15/2017 Ending with the heart-stopping reminder that “littles grow BIG in the blink of an eye,” this tender picture book will surely resonate with the parents and families of newborns. Littles, as we can easily deduce, are babies: freshly bundled and filled with novelty. DiPucchio lovingly lists all the ways in which babies are delightful, with their dimpled knees and sweet slumbers, and a few of the ways in which they are not, like when they smear food everywhere, and cry inconsolably. In addition to showcasing babyhood, the book integrates the roles of older siblings, grandparents, and, of course, parents. All manner of diverse families are represented as participating in the care and raising of littles. Ford’s charming illustrations capture the roly-polyness of preambulatory babies and the many things it takes to ensure they grow up safe and loved. This title can happily join Janna Matthies’ Two Is Enough (2015), Alyssa Satin Capucilli’s I Will Love You (2017), and Patricia Hegarty’s We Are Family (2017) on the bookshelves of new parents. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
