Editorial Reviews

Pamela Paul
The friendly cartoonish drawings and rhythmic text includes lots of "splat splat splats" and "slurp slurp slurps," which makes for a fun read-aloud for family time.
—The New York Times
From the Publisher
"Adults reading to the baby can assure themselves that they will be building the child's vocabulary while sharing a love of reading. Go, Baby, Go! would make a welcome gift for any young child-a pleasure to read aloud, over and over."

"The quick pace of this book along with the rhyming and word repetition make it a perfect addition to baby's book collection."

"The illustrations are colorful and lively as the baby and pets go through a fun filled day! Perfect to share anytime and anywhere you want to smile."

"Go Baby Go! would make an excellent starter book for that new baby in your life. A great book to add to your library and an all-around good read."

"The rhyming is sure to get the attention of your child and delight them."

"The rhyme is fun to read, the words roll off your tongue, and the illustrations will have baby wanting more."

"This charmer of the picture book has a jaunty rhythm mixed with plenty of repetition to catch the attention of very small children."

"The fidgety baby from Janovitz's "Baby Baby Baby!" reappears in an everyday context that will be welcomed by babies and their fond but occasionally resentful older siblings alike. The friendly cartoonish drawings and rhythmic text includes lots of "splat splat splats" and "slurp slurp slurps," which makes for a fun read-aloud for family time. With only a gray kitten and a spotted dog as companions, the baby will be instantly, adorably recognizable to readers - finger food, bouncy seat, spilly cup and all."

"The diaper-clad star investigates the great outdoors with refreshing abandon."

Kirkus Reviews
An active toddler flies through a messy day of play. Caregivers will recognize from the slightest twitch the warning signs of a babe moments away from tantrum. "Out to the garden / QUICK / QUICK / QUICK!" Released from the confines of the stroller, the youngster explores. The tot builds blocks with gusto, stirs some mud pies and even shares snacks with the pets before busyness gives way to relaxation. Wavy lines support the growing intensity, while active verbs maintain the spirited pacing. The happy child commands readers' attention with oversized head, off-kilter, wide-set eyes, cowlick and lopsided smile. The rhythmic text encourages participation with its enthusiasm. "On with the hose / Off with the shirt / Baby's little tummy gets a / SQUIRT / SQUIRT / SQUIRT!" The ministering adult is present only through indication; the diaper-clad star investigates the great outdoors with refreshing abandon. Here's to the sheer willpower of a baby on the run. (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
