#BabyLove: My Social Life is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh. A modern baby's life is filled with photo ops and video recordings. From the minute he wakes up, this baby feels loved and appreciated as the family records him waking up in his crib and follows him throughout the day. They especially want to record his funny frown. The pictures and videos get posted on social media sites, and everyone gets involved in baby's social life. Each post gets lots of likes and loves, and some are starred as family and friends keep up to date with the latest news feeds on baby's fun, meals and outdoor activities. When friends and relatives visit, there are even more opportunities for photo shoots and videos.
Corine Dehghanpisheh's children's picture book, #BabyLove: My Social Life, is a clever and entertaining look at raising children in the age of social media. It's also a somewhat disconcerting look at the cultural phenomenon of sharing every facet of an infant's existence through social media. The author's story flows beautifully, and her illustrations are brightly colored, cheerful and humorous. Many pages are framed by smartphones with tallies of likes, loves and stars. I especially liked the illustrations that were set outdoors; they're stylized but very expressive and compelling. Dehghanpisheh's wry and subtle humor is evident throughout this story that will entertain adults as well as the children they share the book with. #BabyLove: My Social Life is highly recommended for tech-savvy parents and their babies.
