Juvenile Nonfiction. Nature. Reference. Science. HTML:

A cheeky celebration of boobies!

"You have just opened a book about boobies." Meet the Blue-footed Booby, who does not have any boobies at all, since only mammals have boobies. We learn that mammals have boobies to feed babies ?? even though milk can also come from plants. And did you know that boobies, or breasts, vary from person to person, that boobies change over time, and that different animals have different numbers of boobies? Witty and wide-ranging, this eye-opening picture book goes on to explore connections between boobies and mountains, boobies and ancient art and, of course, boobies and you! 

Nancy Vo's latest creation is fresh and funny, while serving up just the right amount of fact. Punchy prose is complemented by striking stencil art in a retro palette, making this the perfect gift for curious young children, older children getting to know their bodies, and anyone ready to boldly celebrate boobies!

Thanksgiving weekend family picture book read-aloud fun! (Book 2 of 13.)

Wait! Wait! Wait! This book isn't about blue-footed boobies?

Well, for goodness sake, nobody tell Florida, they'll just want to spoil it for the rest of us. ( )

From Betsy Bird (Fuse8): "Boobies by Nancy Vo is for an older crowd and has a good strong sense of humor. After all, if you cannot find the funny in a blue-footed booby wearing a snazzy summer hat and a bikini top, we may have to rethink our friendship here. It’s a Canadian creation this book, which probably explains a lot. Chock full of fascinating breast-related facts, this is part of the ever growing trend of helping kids (and, quite frankly, adults) be comfortable with all the different kinds of bodies out there. One stop shopping for all things booby related." ( )
