Whereas there are a number of darkish brown and amber pores and skin tones, it’s principally white kids who seem within the pages to exhibit physique actions, self-care, visiting the physician, senses, and emotions. The companion quantity, Child Animals, employs the identical fashion of sliding panels to introduce children to little critters and their mother and father, from baboons to penguins.
