Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Although not translated word for word from the original, this bilingual version of Baby Day! equally captures the spirit of the exciting life of a baby. From sunup until sundown, the baby in this book eats, bathes, plays, gets dressed, crawls, makes music, listens to a story, goes outside, falls asleep, and finally, wakes up to do it all over again. In addition to exploring the life of a baby, this book also offers vocabulary words on every other page. From a car to a mobile and the animals found hanging from it, from pajamas to flowers, many of the everyday items surrounding a baby are highlighted in this creative book. The author also created the original illustrations using origami and found paper, scissors, a glue stick, tape, and tweezers; the rabbit-themed results match the playful yet educational style of the book well. Whether read to young children or by beginning readers, this book would make an excellent addition to any pre-school or early childhood classroom. 2003, Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 2 to 5.
