When My Baby Dreams of Fairy Tales

When I first received this book, I will admit I was somewhat skeptical. I was merely looking at the cover of a photograph of a baby posed cutely.  This made me think of Anne Geddes' photographs which are cute, but are nothing I am particulary drawn to.
However, when I read Adele Enersen's When My Baby Dreams of Fairy Tales to my daughters, I fell in love with this book. Yes, there are pictures of a cute baby. But this book is just downright clever.  Each page features the baby in a fairy tale scene that matches the text.  We all had a great time looking at the clever props around the baby (such as the pacifier tied to the fishing pole), and determining which fairy tale is being depicted. 
My initial skepticism faded, and this is now a book I plan on giving to my nieces and purchasing for my library collection.
Thanks to Harper Collins for providing a copy of this book.

I love the sound of this one. A perfect way to introduce fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
