Welcome, Precious

by Nikki Grimes, illustrated by Bryan Collier
Grimes poetic salutation to a newborn child instantly seizes the reader with its universal resonance. Collier’s vibrant illustrations add to the feeling of bounty and joy a new mother and father feel in introducing their child to the wonder and beauty of the world. Recommended for ages 0-3.

My Very First Mother Goose

by Iona Opie, illustrated by Rosemary Wells
This is a delightful collection of nursery rhymes accompanied by Wells’ characteristically charming illustrations. Portions are also published as a series of board books that are short enough to keep even the attention of my six-month-old. Opie and Wells collaborated on an additional collection of nursery rhymes, Here Comes Mother Goose, that is just as winning.
