LoveReading View on Utterly Lovely One

This celebration of a baby's loveliness overflows with warmth, playful humour, energy and love.  It is a perfect read-aloud book that simply oozes affection and positivity and celebrates every person, every animal, for who they are. The message of love is both personal (a parent's love for a child) and universal (a love for all living things), making the book seem both intimate and all-embracing. Fresh, light artwork, large format and soothing, lyrical text really make this title special and a wonderful gift.

Utterly Lovely One Synopsis
