Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Perky rhymes like these mimic the energetic pace of a young child's day: "Baby with a blanket,/Baby with a bear./Baby playing hide-and-seek./Where's the baby?/There!" Children will see themselves in these bustling, multi-panel scenes that track a toddler's daily routine from dressing in the morning to playing at the park to splashing in the tub before bedtime. What's more, kids will pick up new words and phrases to help communicate their own needs, from "Up, Up, Up!" to "It's all gone!" (Ages Birth to 2)
Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2006
Children's Literature
Hindley captures the first set of sounds and words spoken by most toddlers by taking us through part of a baby's day, from waking up, getting diapered, playing, and going to the park, to having dinner, a bath, and bedtime. The book skips quickly through several activities, resting lovingly in the park, where many babies speak their most words during the excitement of play. The style is simple and straightforward. Baby's rituals and activities will be recognizable to both the child and adult reader. Writing in verse, Hindley stumbles a bit in trying to force rhymes (Coat and out? Spoon and gone?) and occasionally loses her lovely cadence completely to pursue the concept. This is especially frustrating in a book meant to be read aloud. Award-winning illustrator Granstrom's paintings make up for any textual shortcomings. Inspired by her own son, she has created lively, colorful, and sweet illustrations—just like anyone's favorite toddler. Granstrom's attention to detail gives each page something extra to look for and talk about. 2006, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 mo. to 3.
—Ilene S. Goldman
School Library Journal
PreS-From morning hair brushing to "night-night" with a teddy bear, listeners take a lively tour of a baby's day at the playground, at dinner, and in a bath. Hindley's unfussy rhyme offers on-target opportunities for concept development: "low," "high," "bye," "out." Granstrom's festive gouache-and-pencil cartoons shine in this large format. From single snapshots of the star in a red beret to the multicultural cast in the double-page playground scenes, toddlers will be engaged but never overwhelmed.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Baby's busy day is punctuated by a few of the words and phrases he has learned. After dressing and brushing his hair, baby makes his wants clear: "Up, up, up!" Then it's playtime. "Baby with a blanket, Baby with a bear. Baby playing hide-and-seek. Where's the baby? There!" A trip to the park leads to a barrage of words. Baby's day ends with the nighttime routine common to so many families-dinner ("gone"), bath ("splash") and then bed. Young children will delight in the familiarity-the routine so similar to their own, and simple words they can chime in on. Hindley's rollicking rhymes lend the text a bouncy feel that may just transfer to the lap the child is occupying. (But don't look for consistent rhymes.) Granstrom's illustrations are perfect for the youngest set; there are no backgrounds, and details are both minimal and chosen to reinforce the familiar. An added bonus: Baby's body language and words are perfectly in sync, so older siblings can practice "reading" baby's cues. (Picture book. 2-5)

My hope is that all the family will join in." Judy Hindley lives in England.
