Review: 

This book introduces names of family members - mother, father, sister, brother, grandfather, grandmother, fraternal and paternal aunt and uncle, cousins and God - through the eyes of a baby. I liked how small details on some of the pictures - like the words on a T-shirt - are written in Latin (and the translations are included in the back along with the rest of the text). The text is charming, but these pictures are a bit on the "goofy" side (very cartoon like and some weird proportions). For me, the pictures detracted somewhat from the text (although I admit to being a person who is rather fussy about illustrations - particularly in children's books). Also, there is a slight editing problem on pages 13-14 where the illustrations of the paternal and fraternal aunts are mixed up.
