More About Gyo Fujikawa
Gyo Fujikawa (1908-1999) made a career in the advertising world and also enjoyed a lengthy stint at the Walt Disney Studios, where she designed the large-book version of Fantasia. In 1957, she illustrated her first picture book, A Child's Garden of Verses. Many others followed, some of which she also wrote. Babies, published in 1963, stands as a landmark: it was the first children's book to depict infants of all races and nations sharing growing experiences.

Reviews - What do customers think about Babies (So Tall Board Books)?
Babies Mar 15, 2008
This is a perfect book for little ones. I read it to my son when he was a toddler and it was one of his favorites. Now I bought it for his daughter, and she loves it too.

The book was in great condition at an excellent price. I received it promptly, unlike the other 2 books I ordered from Rescue Books on your site. You should not sell books on your site from people you don't really know.
Very Dissapointed Dec 26, 2007
I have loved this book for years. My niece had several Fujikawa books that were recently handed down to my daughter. The hand-me-down copy of Babies (printed in 1980) was getting torn up so I ordered a new one to replace it. The new copy is missing 6 pages. My daughter is 19 months old and flips back and forth saying "grow, grow" looking for pages that are not there. Everything else is the same. This is still a beautiful book but I'm very dissapointed that this new version is missing pages...and so is my daughter. Should have read the reviews before buying this reprint (printed in 2006).

All of our children loved this book and so did the many other babies who received this as a gift from us. It is timeless!
My Son LOVED This Book! Jul 19, 2007
I'd never read this book before it was given to my son as a gift when he was about one. It soon became his favorite book! He loved the pictures of the babies and the simple text that accompanied them. The overall message of the book, I thought, was lovely -- all babies like to be hugged and kissed and cuddled and loved.
