"This delightful, assured debut children’s book from the acclaimed graphic novelist Knisley explains a baby’s world to her (“You can fit in tiny spots/You get carried quite a lot”) while also preparing her for adventures and challenges ahead (“You might not know just what to do …/That’s O.K. when you are new”). But it’s the art that makes it a true standout — the sweet-looking babies who crawl and traipse through these pages have a refreshing hint of comics-style edge."
