Read Baby, Every Day by John Hutton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I read this board book during a break in my volunteer shift at the library. Written by a pediatrician, it talks about the importance of filling a baby’s life with words. And, it’s not just during story time which is, of course, recommended, but through talking, just helping them identify the world around them.

I’d been meaning to read this for awhile- and after reading his other work The Wolves of Currumpaw, I finally picked it up. Quite an undertaking- both the expedition to the South Pole and the storytelling style. This is definitely the kind of book one will pore over to make sure not miss any of the details. While I do admire the endurance the crew had and the daring to explore, a part of me also wondered what the point of it was. (Though I admit, I’m not much of a nature person.) I appreciated the glossary at the back.
