Is there anything more splendid than a baby’s skin? For families of all stripes comes a sweet celebration of what makes us unique–and what holds us together. Look at you! You look so cutein your brand-new birthday suit. Just savor these bouquets of babies–cocoa-brown, cinnamon, peaches and cream. As they grow, their clever skin does too, enjoying hugs and tickles, protecting them inside and out, and making them one of a kind. Fran Manushkin’s rollicking text and Lauren Tobia’s delicious illustrations paint a breezy and irresistible picture of the human family–and how wonderful it is to be just who you are.
Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including How Mama Brought the Spring; Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; and The Tushy Book. There is a real Katie Woo – she’s Fran’s great-niece – but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved MacBook in New York City.
