Coined by the late anthropologist Sheila Kitzinger, MBE, the term "babymoon" refers to the period just after a baby's birth, when the immediate family take the time to welcome the newcomer, and bond with him or her. Author Hayley Barrett celebrates one such babymoon in this delightful picture-book, her rhyming text working together with illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal's artwork to create a sense of peace, warmth and family love...

With a rhyming text just made to be read aloud - "The house is hushed. The lights are low. / We're basking in a newborn glow. / The not we post says See You Soon. / At last - we're on our babymoon" - and absolutely charming artwork, Babymoon would make a wonderful story-time selection, perhaps with a prospective older sibling, or with the newborn themselves. Martinez-Neal's artwork here just glows, suffused with a sense of light and warmth, and expressively capturing the love the two parents (and the family cat and dog!) have for this tiny newcomer. Recommended to anyone looking for books about the idea of babymoon (I'd never heard the term before, myself) - about the joy and beauty of welcoming a baby to the family circle. ( )
