Board Book Review: Carry Me

Carry me (Babies Everywhere)Carry Me (Babies Everywhere)

"Whether tucked in a blanket, peeking out of a basket, riding in a backpack, or wrapped in a parent's arms, babies worldwide are carried in unique ways. The simple, rhyming text of this board book introduces children to the ways their global neighbors travel."

I love this board book! Not only does it show babies being worn in different ways from all over the world, it then includes a sort of photo - index in the back. It has a smaller version of each photograph and tells the country of origin. We picked it up at our local library.

  2. That sounds like a lovely book! Our library has one with similar pictures, but that one sounds great. I love seeing babywearing in various cultures. Do they show a Baby Björn? :)

  3. Thanks for joining me, Marilyn!

    And Lauren, I think they do! (I think it might be the first one in the book!)

    They don't identify the slings themselves. In fact, I don't think there were words on any of the pages until you got to the back. It had the photos all in a list (smaller) with the country of origin.

  4. It does! I found the book (Sasha dropped it between the couch and the wall)! The first photo is a Baby Björn carrier and the 2nd looks like one. Those are from England and Scotland.
