Book Review – #BabyLove: My Social Life
This is Angie here today with a review of a picture book that I was given in exchange for an honest review. This book takes the new world of social media that surrounds babies and puts it into a fun form that toddlers can understand. Check out my review below!
“Click.” “Tap.” Tag and post. An adored baby tells a modern tale about life in today’s digital world. #BabyLove: My Social Life highlights the social phenomena of sharing daily activities using technology and social networks.
#BabyLove was a fun way of showing how social media surrounds babies these days. I have a love-hate relationship with social media, but I do love it for showing off my babies. We live far from family, so we love being able to easily share pictures of them. Anyway, it is no secret that babies are stars of social media, they have practically taken it over, so I loved how real this book was. The pictures were fun and simple and easy for my kids to understand and focus on. Just for reference’s sake, my kids are 1 and 3. The book had short lines and the rhymes were great. I get super bugged by confusing rhyming schemes, so I was grateful that this one was good. I loved also that the book was from the baby’s perspective because that means that the language was very simple. My 3-year-old loved repeating the simple words in the book. He also loved that there were so many devices in the book (he loves devices). Anyway, all in all this was a great book. It was modern and positive and a quick read. And when your toddler wants to read like 12 books a night, I always appreciate short ones.
