Summary
Around the world, little ones are carried in many different ways: in slings, on shoulders, in backpacks, on hips, in baskets, and in loving arms. Up! depicts ten places around the world, from Afghanistan to northern Canada, Peru to West Africa. In each place, a mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or sibling lovingly carries a baby.

With various family configurations and settings ranging from a busy outdoor market to a high-rise apartment kitchen, the book wholeheartedly celebrates diversity. Gorgeous cut-paper collage art adds warmth and brightness, and brings the lyrical text to life. Repetition of the phrase "Upsy-daisy" on each spread lends familiarity, and reminds readers that love for a little one is a universal feeling.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Have you ever wondered how families carry their precious children as they go about their daily duties on the other side of the planet? This book shows examples of how babies are carried in many parts of the globe, from tucked into a woman's shawl, bouncing past alpacas in Peru, and nestled in a grandmother's parka while crossing the tundra in Canada's Far North, to cuddled in a woman's sling in an Indian fruit market and sitting in baskets hung from shoulder poles next to fields in China. The book makes a clear and pointed effort to promote all kinds of diversity and depict a variety of cultures in a beautiful and respectful light; however, while the racial and geographical elements are wonderfully executed, the story itself might have benefited from less generic language. Regardless, the concept is very clever, and the three-dimensional cut-paper collage work is exquisitely textured and boldly colored. Barron's past awards are clearly warranted.--Worthington, Becca Copyright 2017 Booklist"
