This first book in the Brown Baby Parade series celebrates Black and brown babies and delivers a universal message of love, letting all babies know that they are cherished from head to toe.

Love is in the bathroom when Daddy combs my hair.
He picks out my Afro and clips in bows with care.
 
Love is in the kitchen. We all sit down to eat—
waffles, milk, and sausage, and yummy syrup sweet.
 
A little girl observes the ways that love is shown and shared throughout her day. From Sister’s kisses when she wakes to eating breakfast with her family and playing with friends at school, love is all around.

Nikki Shannon Smith's soothing, rhythmic text and Ronique Ellis's warm, welcoming illustrations pair beautifully to create heartwarming scenes of everyday life. It’s never too early to show little ones that they are valued and cherished, and this book does just that.

Series Overview: The concept of Brown Baby Parade is based on the idea that a parade is a joyous celebration on display for all to see. In this series for young children, Black and brown babies are out and about enjoying life, giving and receiving love, learning, and growing. The characters will be seen in multiple settings and nurturing experiences, providing a source of comfort and joy.
