    Beware – reprint missing many pages! This book is so dear to me. I recently bought extra copies to give as gifts. I was so dismayed to see that this reprint is missing 6 pages from the original — including a two-page spread near the center of the book with a blue background (and featured the only African American baby — now gone). If you loved this book as a child, don’t think that buying this reprint will replace the one you had. This abbreviated reprint has been published with the same ISBN as the copy I have from 1985 — fraud! They should have changed the ISBN to reflect the change in content. I’m not sure if the 1991 reprint had the missing pages or not. The new one sold now was printed in 2003. I’m writing a letter to the editor to ask for a complete reprint! [...]

    Very Dissapointed I have loved this book for years. My niece had several Fujikawa books that were recently handed down to my daughter. The hand-me-down copy of Babies (printed in 1980) was getting torn up so I ordered a new one to replace it. The new copy is missing 6 pages. My daughter is 19 months old and flips back and forth saying “grow, grow” looking for pages that are not there. Everything else is the same. This is still a beautiful book but I’m very dissapointed that this new version is missing pages…and so is my daughter.Should have read the reviews before buying this reprint (printed in 2006).

    Best Cuddle Book I’ve read this to my daughter since she was 4 mos. At 16 mos. she just loves this book. I use the pictures of babies doing things like being nice to a younger child, doing things for themselves, and being good or naughty to talk to her about day-to-day events. When I read the line, “All babies liked to be hugged and cuddled and loved,” my daughter snuggles close to me and says, “Oh Baby.” This book is priceless. The illustrations are not only beautiful but feature children of diverse backgrounds.
