You and Me, Baby
by Lynn Reiser, photography by Penny Gentieu
Baby-preschool 40 pages Knopf October 2006 Hardcover    

Itís hard to say who is having more fun in these pictures - the parents or the babies! Lynn Reiserís new book is filled with photographs of moms, dads, and babies enjoying each otherís company. There is happiness in the eyes and excitement in the smiles of these babies and parents as they interact with one another. The babies are communicating with their parents through their expressions and their actions, sometimes reciprocating what they see, sometimes being spontaneous. Often, baby and parent seem to be entertaining each other. During meal time, for example, mom is feeding her smiling baby, and then baby is offering food to mom!

Using bold, solid background colors like orange and purple and a few baby furnishings, each parent/child pair is photographed enjoying daily activities. Penny Gentieu, the talented author and photographer of Wow! Babies!, Baby! Talk!, and Grow! Babies!, photographed families from diverse backgrounds having fun during feeding time, bath time, and play time. With minimal text and some reiteration of phrasing, this book is easy to share with babies and toddlers. The familiar pictures in this book are sure to light up childrenís eyes!
