Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this treasury of five simple short stories, meant for the youngest listeners, the author provides gentle instructions for caregivers--in a kind tone that will help inexperienced adults gain confidence--on how to share the book and ways to talk about elements of the text. Brightly colored, energetic illustrations, rendered in gouache, acrylic, and India ink, depict Black and brown family members in various combinations (parents and child, woman with a baby, man with a daughter). Warmth flows from every page, furthering the message that "beauty begins with you." The brief stories, which could be viewed as rhythmic poems, are paired with inspiring introductions, such as poems originating with Langston Hughes or ancient Sanskrit, as well as quotations from Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, and Michelle Obama. The story titles, "Bright Brown Baby," "Count to Love," "Peek-a-You," "Baby Boy, You Are a Star," and "Hey, Baby Girl!" leave no doubt about the positive tone of the collection. Affirming and inviting, this book will be well used in baby storytimes and family read-alongs."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a five-section treasury of poems with directions for adult readers, married collaborators Davis Pinkney and Pinkney (Loretta Little Looks Back) speak directly to children of color via joyful nursery-style rhymes and glad images of brown-skinned babies and adults with various skin tones. A brief quotation, from figures including Langston Hughes and Michelle Obama, prefaces each section, as does text for caregivers ("Begin by telling your Bright Brown Baby what you've always known: 'When I count my blessings, I count you twice.' "). Davis Pinkney's affirming lines conjure families playing peekaboo and counting, and include a sequence each for boys and girls; Pinkney's signature bold-hued ink and paint spreads, meanwhile, capture affectionate, playful moments in kinetic scenes that center cuddling adults and children. Front matter sets the tone ("What to do with this book: Speak it. Sing it. Bring it."), and creators' notes exhort caretakers to "let the Bright Brown Babies in your life know how truly special they are" and emphasize "the precious affection that every child needs." A radiant evocation of love. Ages up to 3. (Jan.)"
