Editorial Reviews

Carol Lynch
A baby can wake up in so many interesting places! This babyfinds that every wake-up reveals a clue about where the family is visiting. The first clue is a watermelon with black seeds, inviting the reader to guess that the family is at the market. The next page reveals the baby in a wagon in the middle of a busy neighborhood grocery store. Each day, the baby is carried in a different way (stroller, backpack, sling, etc.) and taken to a new place. The colorful photographs capture a loving family exposing their baby to the world. An extra feature is the hunt for a doll who happens to be hidden in each picture. This is a fun, interactive book for adults and toddlers to share. -- Carol Lynch, for Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Join Baby in a unique guessing game as she engages in typical family outings. During the course of a week and through varying means of transportation, Baby keeps waking up in different locations wondering, "Where Can I Be?". Quality photographs isolate objects in Baby's environment and become keys to unlock larger viewpoints. Baby's narrative leads the reader on a quest for answers. Responses range from the market and the park to the aquarium and the post office. Rich visual appeal and repetitive dialogue entertain infants. Some cleverly hidden objects, picture associations, and verbal participation in Baby's dialogue with the reader intrigue and challenge toddlers, too. This book appeals to the 0-3 year-olds. Concepts of part to whole, days of the week, and the security of a family are evident throughout. Set in a Washington, D.C. neighborhood, this first in a series of five realistic fiction books affirms family values, while highlighting the author, known for her advocacy in women's health issues, and her own family as the subjects of the book. An additional bonus of a teacher's guide is available through a given website.
