“Once when the world tipped upside down, the earth went blue and the sky went brown. All the baby animals tumbled out of bed and ended up with very funny moms instead.” These are the first two sentence in this clever and beautifully illustrated book, “Upside Down Babies.” We would all be a bit shocked to see a pig falling into a parrot’s nest. But just imagine how that parrot mom would feel. How about a polar bear landing in the desert next to her new mom, a camel. A cheetah faster than lightning ends up with a sloth, can anything be slower. This cheery book brings humor to each page as each mom is faced with unthinkable challenges gazing on their new babies. Of course, the world does turn around but the ending may surprise you as a few babies and moms actually are happier with their new arrivals.
This book is great for our toddlers as well as preschool children. Any adult would enjoy sharing this book with a group of children as well as a fun read one on one.
