Reach

Elizabeth Verdick and Marjorie Lisovskis. Free Spirit, $6.99 (22p) ISBN 978-1-57542-424-8
In this addition to the Happy Healthy Baby series, Verdick and Lisovskis home in on an early developmental milestone—the use of hands to reach, grasp, and explore. B&w photos of babies smiling and reaching are paired with bright yellow pages with cartoon images of little ones smiling, crawling, and playing, as well as a simple verse: “Hungry baby wants some more./ Reaching is what hands are for!” Seven tips for adults offer useful suggestions for interacting with babies (“Your hands can be a ‘baby toy.’ Demonstrate waving, clapping, and reaching”) and encouraging motor skills. Simultaneously available: Eat. Up to age 2. (Sept.)
