Babies Don’t Walk, They Ride! Kathy Henderson. Illustrated by Lauren Tobia. U.S. edition: Templar Books / Candlewick Press, 2016
Babies don’t just ride; they glide, stroll, roll, and more in a pleasing picture book featuring a lively cast of babies and the adults in their lives moving across the day. The rhyming text is set against vibrant, engaging detailed mixed- media illustrations that show the energy and inclusion of a multicultural city neighborhood and the many warm ways adults engage with babies in a story that ends with the quiet dark. There are many diverse babies and families to notice and follow throughout the book. The principle family appears white. (Ages 1–4) © Cooperative Children’s Book Center
