Although I bought this book for myself, it would make a lovely baby gift! I have a three month old son, and a four year old daughter, and I found this book beautiful and informative! The photographs are lovely, especially to the eyes of a new parent who is falling in love with their own baby. The overlays of internal body structures (skeleton, eyes, etc) are fascinating. And in between feedings, baths, rocking and playing, I am also enjoying the amazing story of how a baby grows -- wonderful!
