More, More, More Said the Baby by Vera B. Williams
This book gives us a glimpse at the adventures of three toddlers: Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. In each vignette one child is chased, tickled, kissed, swung around, and given unconditional love by an adult in their life. The pictures in the book are done in vibrant colours, but are a little bit quirky and I've found that children are either absolutely fascinated by them or they take one look and just walk away. Something that is very unique about the book is that it depicts families from different racial and generational perspectives, which is really unusual for a book that targets the young reader. You can get "More, More, More said the Baby" in hard cover, board book, and paperback versions. It is also available in English and Spanish versions. Where to Buy: The book was originally published in 1996, but is fairly easy to find at bookstores that cater to children. You can also find it on that old standby - Amazon.
