Summary
Pairing creative rhyming similes with cut-paper collage art, Love You Head to Toe is an adorable book that compares newborn babies to baby animals on every page. Bright, playful illustrations show a different baby and a different species of animal, both engaged in similar behavior: babies stretch their limbs like sea stars, splash in the water like ducklings, toddle around like bear cubs, and fill their chubby cheeks like chipmunks.

Action verbs on each page give the book energy and movement and reflect the varied activities of a baby's day, with key elements like mealtime, bath time, and bedtime in chronological order. Babies and caregivers of a wide range of ethnicities are represented in this heartwarming read-aloud designed to show little ones how much they are cherished and loved.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Barron's first picture book as author and illustrator is a love song to babies and toddlers that new parents may well end up memorizing from frequent reading. It draws parallels between human children and the animal shapes their small bodies make as they go about their baby lives. As baby reaches for the mobile above his crib, Barron sees him as a kitten batting its paws at a butterfly just out of reach; as another draws her legs up on the changing table, she becomes a hedgehog baby, all curled up; and as a little girl crawls around on the beach, she resembles a young turtle. Some readers may not appreciate the comparison of human babies to animals, but there is much love in these analogies that take note of the sweet, small ways babies are adorable. Gently rhyming text makes for smooth, melodic reading that might be useful at bedtime. Beautiful cut-paper collages depict the animals and multiethnic babies in similar postures yawning like a hippo, bouncing like a froggy. A sweet read-aloud for little ones.--Amina Chaudhri Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Barron compares the ways that human and animal babies interact with others, play, snack, and cuddle. A gray kitten gently bats at a yellow butterfly just as an infant touches the butterfly on a mobile: "Baby, you're just like a kitten,/ Reaching up so high." As two bears hug, a woman offers a reassuring embrace as her child slips in the autumn leaves: "Baby, you're a bear cub,/ Toddling on two feet." A baby in a bathtub clutches a plastic toy while an otter baby holds a purple sea urchin on its chest. Barron's friendly collage illustrations have a shapely, multidimensional look that readers will want to reach out and touch, and they show appreciable similarities between babies of all sorts.
