Description

From the award-winning photographer David Ellwand — a celebration of babies in all their marvelous individuality.The ultimate gift book for mothers-to-be and others anticipating a new arrival!

Every day in the world, more than 350,000 babies are born. That's 14,500 per hour, 245 per minute, 4 per second . . . and each one is unique. And never is that miracle portrayed more stunningly than in the luminous photographs of David Ellwand — an infant gazing intently with balled-up fists; tiny toes and fingers as delicate as flowers; a medley of babies' faces, close up and radiantly expressive. Interspersed with quotes that will resonate with grown-up readers, BABY UNIQUE is sure to fascinate the youngest of listeners, who will see themselves reflected in its enchanting images.
