Baby Loves

Illustrated by Mary Cassatt

Atheneum 2003

Ages: All ages

Topic: Gifts for the New Baby

American Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt conveys the exuberant love mothers feel for their new baby with her impressionist paintings of a baby clapping hands, drinking milk, feeding ducks or kissing mommy good night.

What a marvelous celebration of new beginnings. The simple two word rhymes- baby hugs, baby claps, baby cuddles, add to the selection of illustrations in several mediums: prints, oils, pastels and etchings. It is an elegant "Welcome Home" baby gift!
