Welcoming Babies draws from experiences around the world to show the diverse ways in which the human family welcomes new life.
As we read about the routines and rituals of a child’s first year in far-flung countries and cultures, we meet babies from tiny Luke, who is spending his first days of life in an incubator, to Kasa, who is being introduced to the sunrise by her grandmother. There are many different―yet strikingly kindred―ways to welcome babies into the world.
This edition of a classic book is renewed and updated in look and content. Welcoming Babies includes nontraditional families―biracial, adoptive, and single-parent―while honoring diversity and human bonds.Color throughout
