An adorable book that just makes me feel happy and long to hear a baby giggle :-) Meyers uses few words in a lyrical fashion to portray lots of things that babies "everywhere" do.The illustrations by Marla Frazee are a pure delight—I am really a fan of her work after having read and loved All the World and the same warmth, humor and attention to detail are present here.

The only "downside" to this book, IMO, is that the "everywhere" seems to only include industrialized nations both in terms of text and certainly in illustrations, though multiculturalism is highlighted through different races represented.I would have loved to see greater variety in terms of babies in less developed nations and even indigenous cultures.(Guess I'll just have to go watch that "Babies" documentary when it finally hits theaters here!)

But, overall, this is a really lovely book!:-)
