Books for Queer Families: Everywhere Babies

everywhere babies

This is my absolute favorite book for new babies and I recommend it to everyone. It’s not a book specifically for queer families, so much as it is a book that is super inclusive of all kinds of babies and families. A rhyming tale of what babies do.

Pros: Inclusive – there are two moms zonked out with a newborn, there are white grandparents holding a brown-skinned baby, there are dads being dads (i.e., involved and awesome) just as muchas there a moms being moms. Marla Frazee is one of my absolute favorite illustrators and the pictures here are just a delight. Love it.

Cons: There are no cons. Okay, that’s not totally true – for a super inclusive book, it’s surprising to me that there are no illustrations with a kid or parent with a visible disability.

The Bottom Line: So lovely. Buy it, read it, love it, give it away.
