They're joyful, they're mischievous, they're full of life and wonder--they're babies! On their very best behavior or their very worst, you'll find it all in The Big Book of Babies, a 384-page collection of more than 230 black-and-white photographs--printed in duotone--that capture the wonder and excitement of babies' first years. The expressions of amazement that come from discovering their new surroundings, the incredible messes they can get themselves into, their irresistable habit of falling asleep in the unlikeliest of places--these are but a few of the reasons babies entertain, delight, and fascinate. From laughter, to tears, to trouble of all sorts, The Big Book of Babies is sure to bring a smile to your face. The images are complemented by J.C.'s own whimsical drawings, and by hilarious stories, touching moments, and excerpts and quotes from the works of such diverse and classic writers as Louise Erdrich, Mark Twain, Carl Sandburg, Walt Whitman, and more. The result is a rich source of joy and entertainment for parents-to-be, new parents, empty nesters, grandparents, and siblings to share.
