How Families Around the World Carry Their Little Ones
By (author): Susan Hughes Illustrated by: Ashley Barron
9781771471763 Hardcover, Dust jacket English Juvenile: Age (years) from 2 - 5, Grade (CAN) from P - 2, Grade (US) from P - 2 JUVENILE NONFICTION / Family / Multigenerational Apr 15, 2017
$17.95 CAD
Active 8.25 x 8 x 0.38 in 24 pages Owlkids Books Inc.
A worldwide tour of the many ways we carry our little ones. 

Around the world, little ones are carried in many different ways: in slings, on shoulders, in backpacks, on hips, in baskets, and in loving arms. Up! depicts ten places around the world, from Afghanistan to northern Canada, Peru to West Africa. In each place, a mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or sibling lovingly carries a baby.

With various family configurations and settings ranging from a busy outdoor market to a high-rise apartment kitchen, the book wholeheartedly celebrates diversity. Gorgeous cut-paper collage art adds warmth and brightness, and brings the lyrical text to life. Repetition of the phrase “Upsy-daisy” on each spread lends familiarity, and reminds readers that love for a little one is a universal feeling.

SUSAN HUGHES is the author of over 30 children’s books, and a freelance editor and story coach. She lives with her family in Toronto, Ontario. Find out more about Susan and her books at www.susanhughes.ca.

"Inclusivity is a hallmark of this book... A celebration of baby love as it's carried out all over the world." - Kirkus Reviews

"The book makes a clear and pointed effort to promote all kinds of diversity and depict a variety of cultures in a beautiful and respectful light...the concept is very clever, and the three-dimensional cut-paper collage work is exquisitely textured and boldly colored. Barron's past awards are clearly warranted." - Booklist

"Detailed illustrations of realistically diverse families elevate a simple concept. Ideal for sharing one-on-one with toddlers and preschoolers." - School Library Journal

"An utterly charming and beautifully illustrated book that celebrates diversity in all forms while simultaneously exploring cultures around the world." - Canadian Review of Materials

"A wonderful collection of vignettes from around the world...a global story of life and love." - CanLit for Little Canadians
