From the illustrator of Anna Hibiscus, comes a book filled with all kinds of bouncing babies, and a joyful celebration of the new skin of babyhood in all its wonderful forms.

Bouquets of babies sweet to hold: cocoa-brown, cinnamon, and honey gold. Ginger-coloured babies, peaches and cream, too – splendid skin for me, splendid skin for you! A delightfully rhythmical read-aloud text is paired with bright, bustling art from the award-winning Lauren Tobia, illustrator of Anna Hibiscus, in this joyful exploration of the new skin of babyhood. A wonderful gift book for new mums and toddlers, all children can see themselves, and open their eyes to the world around them, in this sweet, scrumptious celebration of skin in all its many, many, wonderful forms.

  • Introducing the idea that we all have skin – but demonstrating how many different
    forms skin can take – children can begin to understand both their individuality and
    common humanity at the very same time, making it a perfect candidate for the
    #weneeddiversebooks campaign.
  • With its yummy illustrations of adorable babies and its bouncy read-aloud text, this title is destined to become a bedtime favourite.
