The Wicked Big Toddlahby Kevin Hawkes
Absolutely nothing exciting happens in Maine . . . nothing, that is, except for the birth of one giant baby. "That's one wicked big toddlah you got there!" exclaims Uncle Bert . . . and so Toddie is named.Toddie's a baby just like any other . . . sort of. The thing is, he's big—really big. That means really big diapers, really big teeth,/i>

The title should be "How to Take Care of a Giant Baby". That's the basis of every page, giving you a look at what it would be like to take care of a huge toddler. The illustrations helped the book immensely by involving everyone ones way of helping in every scene. Set in Maine, some of the story is driven by culture there, from boats, to making syrup, and even a reference to the accent. All in all, it's cute, but not one of my favorite books. I would recommend it especially to families getting ready to add another child. Older children will appreciate the correlation to how much work a baby can be and how they change our lives. I love children's books, and hate not being able to give a better recommendation. It's a good book, but not what I was looking for. The ending was a bit disapointing, in that there wasn't really one. Each page was a look into a different aspect from feeding, changing diapers, bed time, play time, etc.
Maine. Giant babies. What more could a 2 year old want?
