Because You are My Baby is a book that incorporates an amazing writing technique, with amazing illustrations. The mother in this story tells her child of the various things she will do for him in different scenarios. With amazing watercolor illustration, Sherry North portrays a mother who is telling her son how much she loves him with words and images. She explains that as a sailor, an astronaut, or even a genie, she will always love him and do anything to make him happy because he is her child.

A fun book with great pictures that show just what a mother would do to make her baby's dreams come true!
This is a fun book for parents and kids to share. All of the things that a mother would do for her baby (sing hit songs as a rock star, bring the baby precious gems as a geologist, drive a buggy on the moon as an astronaut, throw a touchdown as the quarterback, etc.) make for a whimsical story. The illustrations are lovely although somewhat muted (perhaps not the most visually appealing for a younger crowd). Fun!
I love the watercolor art work in this book. It just glows, as all good watercolors must!

The words are just perfect for my daughter and I. Even though I think the author wrote this for a boy.

I really liked this book.
I loved reading this book to my four year old, and he loved combing the beautiful images for the teddy bear. The writing is wonderful and carries a powerful message: that parents would do anything for their child.
I loved this book. Full of adventure and creativity. Anyone who is a mother wishes they were a genie and mother's will do anything for their child/children.
Everything we would like to be to make our children happy. Marcellus Hall's illustrations are the best part of this book and make it worth checking out.
I like this book more for a one-on-one experience rather than use for storytime. It's a story of unconditional love, very touching.
Great illustrations, coloring was particularly good, and the story--v. sweet.
Another book from a club I thought I'd cancelled. Nice artwork though.
What a beautiful kids book. buy it for your next baby shower.

Related to the author. Pretty cool book, though.
