Praise for Cuddle
“The tender photos will draw in viewers of any age.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Verdick and Lisovskis combine sweet-natured verse with photographs of babies giving and receiving affection. The close-up b&w photos are attention-grabbing, and the accompanying pastel cartoons add to the nursery rhyme vibe. A final spread offers ‘cuddle time’ tips for adults and information about the importance of touch for babies.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for the series
“Best baby selfies.”—Parents

“It’s no secret that babies are obsessed with their own kind, and these pics deliver. The theme of each book is an action babies do, such as sleeping or eating.”—Monica Carnesi, children’s-materials specialist, Free Library of Philadelphia
