Hey Baby!

Hey Baby! by Corinne Fenton (black dog books)
PB RRP $16.95
ISBN 9781922179180
Reviewed by Anastasia Gonis

Hey Baby! celebrates the uniqueness of every living being with the focus on babies -animal and human.  Using photographed images and beginning from the cover depicting a racoon and her baby, every picture is a testimony to the singularity of new life and its precious worth.

The impressive images include a baby duck standing upright in her shell with the head and legs sticking out; the profoundly gentle and moving image of a baby gorilla lying on its mother’s back with its eyes closed in utter peace and contentment, and the delightful picture of a baby seal. There are twenty-eight pictures in all, not including the ones on the covers.

Coloured text in large font accents the important words such as ‘unique’ and ‘precious’, and the facial and body features that mothers delight in and gush about. This is a book children and adults will love and take pleasure in sharing. It will be reopened time and time again.
