Grimes, Nikki

Welcome, Precious

(3) PS Illustrated by Bryan Collier. An African American mom welcomes her new baby to all the joys of the world, including "the silk of grass, the satin of rose petals, and the squish of sand between your toes." Grimes's poetic text, complemented by Collier's richly colored watercolor and collage illustrations, is well suited to soothe a cranky baby and her new parents.
