OrangeReviewStarThe DK editors strike gold again with this full-color beauty, described as a "unique pictorial event," which follows the growth of one newborn over the course of 12 months, incorporating scientific research into the photographic explanations of baby Melisa's development. In six broad chapters—Photo Journal, Newborn, Senses, Growing and Learning, Communication, and Becoming an Individual"—everything from acquiring better eyesight to taking first steps is explored with colorful sidebars, gorgeous photographs, and charming illustrations.
VERDICT This is a truly beautiful book that any new parent would love to own. Its single-subject photographic approach gives depth to understanding infant development. The text has a calm and encouraging tone that celebrates the loveliness of babies and families. A must-have for all public library collections, this is unequivocally recommended.
