Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In a story first published in the U.K. in 2013, a young mother lists the reasons why she adores her cherubic baby (“I love my baby because she bakes with me. And she shares beautifully”). However, like any toddler, the girl can be a handful. For each expression of love, Thomas’s illustrations provide a knowing wink to readers, which may be best appreciated by mothers in the same boat: the baby throws eggs out of the cart at the grocery store, scatters her books across the bedroom floor, paints on the wall, and ambles away from her mother while shedding clothes with each step. A gentle palette, a blend of stripes and polka-dot patterns, and a houseful of friendly stuffed animals all contribute to the cozy ambiance of this testament to the messy joys of raising a child. Ages 1–3. (Apr.)

PreS—This story is predictable but nicely told and sweetly illustrated as a mother gives various reasons for why she loves her baby as they go about their day shopping, baking, and doing laundry together. It's a combination of Helen Oxenbury's baby books and Mem Fox's Harriet, You'll Drive Me Wild (Houghton, 2003). The toddler makes messes throughout the busy day, but the mother emphasizes that she loves her child unconditionally. The text to illustration ratio is just right, making the book perfect for baby storytimes and as a general purchase for picture-book collections.—Sarah Wilsman, Kent Free Library, Kent, OH
