The title says it all - this book is no joke, over the top, seriously adorable! The author Lori Haskins Houran, and the absolutely adorable illustrations by Sydney Hanson, had me awwing throughout the entire book.
"Next to You" is all about adorable animals, and how much cuter your kiddo is - even cuter than the cutest of wild creatures. The author continually raises the cuteness stakes- from a very cute puppy to an impossibly cute baby bunny. But no matter what adorable animal is thrown the reader's way, the adorable kiddo next to you is still the cutest!
My one year old enjoyed looking at the illustrations and so did I, this book definitely has broad appeal as I could see a wide range of ages appreciating the humor and adorable animals. This book would looks so cute on any book shelf and would make a sweet baby shower gift!
I love how this book captures that total redefinition of cute that happens after you have a little one!
