Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
Readers of this children's book never see all of Mommy. She is shown only partially, an enormous swollen belly barely covered by various smocks. She is always facing sideways with an unimaginably thin left arm dangling from various short sleeves. Two children, a girl and a boy, appear only on the front cover and the last page, but we assume it is they who are speaking throughout the text. "Oh, Mommy, Mommy, What's in your tummy?" they ask on the first double-page spread. This is followed by "We do want to know what's making it grow" on the second. Over the course of the next pages, they try to guess what could be growing in Mommy's tummy. Could it be a fairy? A boat? The Man in the Moon? A birthday cake? A balloon? A big yellow sun? Mommy never tells them, and they are surprised and pleased to discover on the last page that it is a baby. Mommy's tummy does not appear to grow much over the pages. A child reading this book with Mommy will not be getting any wiser about having babies, families or life itself. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
Kirkus Reviews
The glut of new-baby picture books intended for the four-and-older set often leaves parents of younger children scrambling to find appropriate fare. This British import seeks to fill that need, combining the unexpected surprises lurking in a mommy's tummy with all the fun of lift-the-flap books. Rather than display the baby at various stages of its growth, however, rhyming text displays various guesses as to what lurks in mommy's midriff. One guess is, "A round red balloon?" followed by, "Is there enough room?" when the flap is lifted to reveal the object floating in mommy's bulging middle. The final flap reveals the true denizen of the tummy with, "It's our new baby!" West's brightly colored pictures, presenting a series of tummies clad in a variety of maternity tops, accompany the bouncy, sometimes oddly chosen text. A tad confusing for the smallest of small fry, but kids who already understand what's actually in mommy's tum are sure to enjoy this interactive guessing game of the maternal persuasion. (Picture book. 2-5)
