Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When the two babies wake up in the morning their mothers get them ready for a day at the zoo. There they see all kinds of babies: a warm baby (musk oxen), a cold baby (Magellanic penguins), a tucked-in-a-fold baby (red kangaroo) and many more. The toddlers, a white girl and an African-American boy, look at the animals together, play peek-a-boo in their strollers, eat ice cream, fall down, and have several other experiences common to young children. When they return home they eat and have a bath before their fathers tuck them in for the night. The short, rhyming text has a soothing cadence that is just right for the toddler set. Wolff has selected several unusual animals for this story. The illustrations, done in gouache on watercolor paper, have soft edges. In addition to the animal identification, this is a warm and loving fun day between mothers and their babies. 2004, Dutton, Ages 2 to 4.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-From sunup to sundown, repetitive, rhyming phrases describe a day in the life of two toddlers, one a blond-haired girl and the other an African-American boy. The mothers and children rejoice in one another's company with the constant refrain, "Me baby, you baby." After the morning routine of waking up and getting dressed, both pairs meet at the bus and head for the zoo. Once there, all four of them enjoy looking at the animals ("Warm baby, cold baby,/tucked-in-a-fold baby"). One youngster makes a mess eating an ice-cream cone, and the other falls down while chasing a bird. The day comes to a close with dinner, bath, and bed. With its rhythmic text and delicate gouache artwork, this is a delightful book to share with two- and three-year-olds. The words are printed in gently curving lines, an effect that adds to the intimacy of the illustrations. A warm and loving story that deserves space on library shelves.-Linda Staskus, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Rhythmic verses follow the trip of two toddlers and their mothers as they visit the zoo. After parallel illustrations trace the two early-morning scenes of waking, eating, and dressing, the children and mothers meet for a trip to visit a zoo full of mothers and their children. They visit the pigs, the cows, and birds, "Oink baby, moo baby, pretty in blue baby." The children peek in at the leopards and the sloth. "Fast baby, slow baby," and then the gently swimming seals, "go with the flow baby." Softly tinted illustrations rendered in gouache bleed from the pages as if airbrushed. While the trip to the zoo, full of mothers and babies of all sizes and shapes, offers an interesting subject, the overly repetitious verse and somewhat saccharine paintings keep this from being a distinctive selection.
