Staff Reviews

This charming and tender welcome to the world for babies is depicted in the vibrant colors of warm sunsets and lush jungles and the soothing pastels of moonlit nights and Arctic auroras. Gentle repetition is paired with lilting rhymes as mothers–human and animal–introduce their children to the world around them.

— Jenna, Wild Rumpus

Traverse the animal kingdom for a gorgeous celebration of the joys of a new baby — and the pleasure of introducing that baby to the wide world — in the perfect gift for new parents.

Welcome, little baby,
round your mama curled.
Welcome, little baby.
Welcome to your world.

With lyrical language and stunning illustrations, Welcome to Your World takes readers from ice-capped mountains to the depths of the sea. Tender scenes between animals and their babies encourage families to join in the loving bond that connects them to one another and to the wonders of our planet. This beautiful book is ideal for sharing with new babies, new parents, and children just venturing out in the world, as best-selling author Smriti Prasadam-Halls and acclaimed illustrator Jaime Kim provide both a celebration of nature and a gentle reminder to protect it.
