Kisses Kisses Baby-O! Welcome Song for Baby: A Lullaby for Newborns
In the Spring 2007 issue of Canadian Children’s Book News, I put out a call to publishers for “more board books please!” Now, one year later, I am delighted that publishers have responded with an amazing new crop of high quality Canadian board books for babies. Orca Book Publishers have produced a stunning new board book written by renowned First Nations storyteller Richard Van Camp. Welcome Song for Baby is a lullaby that welcomes a child into the world: “the sun rises for you/the earth welcomes you/we raise our hands to you.” It is a song and a chant and a celebration of the joy a new baby brings into the world. The full page, full-colour photographs are stunning. Each photo focuses on beautiful baby faces from many cultures. Like Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever,, Welcome Song for Baby is a book that honours the precious bond between parent and child. Nova Scotia’s Nimbus Publishing have produced the first Nova Scotia board book for babies, Kisses Kisses Baby-O! written by award-winning author and literacy advocate Sheree Fitch. The strength of this book is the lyrical language, which weaves words through a baby’s day: “Eyes blink open/sun winks in/hello baby!/day begins kisses kisses/head to toe/kisses kisses/baby-O.” This book is a joy to read aloud with bounce and rhythm and lipslippery language like “slurpy burpy and snuggle huggle” that will tickle the tongue. Hilda Rose’s illustrations of touching, kissing and cuddling model loving interactions between family and baby. Scholastic Canada has added to its growing list of board books with a re-issue of an old favourite — Sing a Song of Mother Goose illustrated with the vibrant Plasticine art of Barbara Reid. Scholastic didn’t simply re-issue the original 1987 version in board book format, a mistake often made by publishers, but have done a fresh new re-design with a selection of 14 verses and all new illustrations. I was delighted to see Reid’s addition of a pile of soft pillows under the cradle in “Rock-abye Baby.” The result is a perfect first Mother Goose collection for families, daycares and libraries.
