Where Is Baby? by Kathryn O. Galbraith {Children's Book Review}

Disclosure: I received a sample copy of this book to review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Before I had kids, I worked at a library. My specialty was children's programming. I loved doing storytime and kid's book clubs. Sometimes I would just request new children's books for the sheer joy of looking at the illustrations. Every time I found a book with illustrations by John Butler, I was thrilled. So when I had the chance to review this title, it seemed like a perfect fit.

This picture book starts off telling a story of a little baby and the classic game of childhood peek-a-boo or hide-and-seek. The question is asked: Where is baby? and then readers are whisked off on a journey to encounter a collection of lovely little baby animals in all the places that they hide.

We're treated to the sight of baby leopards up in a tree, baby polar bears in the snow, baby prairie dogs in the desert, and more. The assortment of animals that are introduced includes some of the typical creatures you find in children's books - but also, more obscure animals like bats, ostriches, and more. The captivating beauty of these animal illustrations makes me want to read the book over and over again - and my kids love it, too!

It features simple text, so it is perfect to read to toddlers who may be interested in something larger than a board book - but who don't have the attention span to sit through a long story.

Overall, this book has become a family favorite and I know we will treasure it for a long time!
