Praise For Baby, Come Away

“Though there’s no shortage of books that delight in toddler love, this offering is destined to become a cherished favorite...Full of rhyme, alliteration, and playful wording, the text lends itself to group reading or one-on-one sharing equally well...The text has a songlike cadence that is a joy to read out loud. ”--School Library Journal “Walker’s round-headed toddler and friendly, dot-eyed animals populate smudgy and warm scenes that capture the boy’s body language and the welcoming nature of the worlds he explores.” --Publishers Weekly
