“Little humans are growing each day. They won’t be little for long.”

Followers of Humans of New York have a pint sized new favorite to enjoy: Little Humans. Featuring a variety of little guys in all sorts of great outfits and poses, it’s a sweet little book to share with your kids, or enjoy for yourself. Whether you’re just looking for a little something different for story time or you want to support your favorite photographer, you won’t be disappointed when your copy arrives.

For those unfamiliar with Humans of New York, it’s a blog created by photographer Brandon Stanton. Stanton features eye catching photographs of interesting people of all ages, sizes, races, etc., along with incredibly engaging snippets of the conversations he has with them. The combination of his eye for good subjects, talent with a camera, and his skill for knowing just the right questions to ask have made his blog very popular, with literally millions of followers glued to his every post. Little Humans applies that same concept to children, featuring photos of adorable children that are sure to captivate your little ones.

It wouldn’t be a HONY project without captivating photographs, and you’ll find them in spades in Little Humans. From tiny fashionistas wearing the latest in micro fashion to tiny faces all bundled up against the cold, the photos that make up the book are clear and colorful, and somehow they manage to capture the essence of their little subjects perfectly. There is one photo on each page, giving young readers a lot to look at – and to relate to, since these are kids just like them. They ride bike. They play sports. They love super heroes.

Along with the photos, the book tells a little story about Little Humans. Rather than a fairy tale, it’s more of a monologue on what it is to be a kid. Told in rhyming text, the story is about all the things that kids can do – get back up if they fall, help out others, grow tall, and more. And since it features kids of all races, sizes, and gender, young readers will surely find someone they can relate to, while at the same time learning that the world is a very diverse place, with all types of people in it.

Little Humans is a book about being a kid. With rhyming text that is well suited to early readers, it shows kids that it’s okay to be a little different, and that the world is made up of a wonderful variety of kids who, at heart, are just like them. With captivating photos that capture the essence of childhood on every page, it’s sure to be a bedtime story that you’ll love just as much as your kids do.
