All of Baby Nose to Toes (2009): Charming

Victoria Adler, All of Baby Nose to Toes (Dial Books, 2009)

This is what pre-lit should be.

Victoria Adler is another author (viz. David Milgrim above) who got her book put on hold at the library because one of hers (Baby, Come Away) is in heavy rotation at Goat Central storytime. All of Baby Nose to Toes isn’t the world’s most original book, but Adler seems to be on more solid ground than she was when trying to think way outside the box in Baby, Come Away. I actually liked this one a little bit more, though honestly it’s like trying to compare apples and oranges. Of the books of its type, honestly, the only other one I’ve found that even comes close to being this re-readable, enchanting, and popular at storytime is Mem Fox’s Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes. This one is definitely going into the permanent collection. ****
