Babies by Gyo Fujikawa is a delicately illustrated vintage book all about babies. Fujikawa’s Babies describes these tiniest folks’ funnest and funkiest attributes (cuddling, crying, and everything in between).
But here’s what’s super cool: Babies (the book) paved the way for better representation in children’s books, featuring multi-racial characters thanks to Fujikawa's persistence. Hooray for progress!

We are on Puyallup land.
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional homelands of the Puyallup Tribe. The Puyallup people have lived on and stewarded these lands since the beginning of time, and continue to do so today. We recognize that this land acknowledgement is one small step toward true allyship and we commit to uplifting the voices, experiences, and histories of the Indigenous people of this land and beyond.

We gratefully honor and acknowledge that we rest on the traditional lands of the Puyallup People. The Puyallup people have lived on this land since the beginning of time. They are still here today. They live, work, raise their children, take care of their community, practice their traditional ways and speak the Twulshootseed language – just as their ancestors did.
