Editorial Reviews

Susan Schmidt
As Rosie's mom gets the baby ready for naptime, four-year-old rosie tells her all about her own "babies"---a plush bear and rabbit---who love to go to the park, make pies, and drive cars. soft watercolors in cozy blue and brown tones set a homey scene and lovingly portray both the family relationship and the imaginary adventures.
The Horn Book Guide
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Waddell (previously paired with Dale for When the Teddy Bears Came) perfectly captures the nuances of a child's conversation with her mother in this disarming story. As her mother takes care of Rosie's infant sibling, the attention-commanding four-year-old tells her mother all about "her babies" (a teddy bear and plush rabbit). The left side of each spread shows Rosie with her mother in realistic pencil-and-watercolor illustrations; the artwork opposite shows the stuffed companions sprung to life. For instance, Rosie tells her mother, "My babies make their own pies, but they never eat them," while the illustration shows the teddy bear and bunny making mud pies. "What do they eat?" asks the mother, and Rosie replies, "My babies eat apples and apples and apples all the time. And grapes and pears but they don't like the seeds." The cover illustration is unfortunately more saccharine than the balance of Dale's illustrations, the best of which recall Tasha Tudor's artwork with their slightly nostalgic charm and skillful details (a painted wooden sled, a flower-print comfy chair). This book beautifully fuses the free rein of Rosie's imagination with the authentic rapport between Rosie and her mother. Ages 3-5. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Four year old Rosie is a devoted mother to her "babies," just as her own mother is taking good care of the new human baby at their house. Emotionally vivid, gently colored illustrations bring all these lovely characters to life. Together words and pictures tell the story of a mom washing, feeding, dressing, and tucking in the new baby while Rosie talks to her about reading, playing and cooking with, and rescuing her own babies. Rosie's babies are a stuffed bear and rabbit, and the imaginative play of this resourceful 4-year old is as authentic as it is heartwarming. This would be a great book to share with kids who have a new sibling. But it's not exclusively for them. It's for anyone who loves to play pretend or loves someone who does. 1999 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-A gentle story about the bonds between mothers and their children. While her mother nurses a newborn, Rosie, age four, tells her about the care and handling of her two babies-a stuffed toy rabbit and a bear. While the story is competently told, the watercolor illustrations are exceptional. They are warm and expressive whether conveying the realistic actions of the adult or the child's fanciful imaginings. The layout is perfectly balanced. Children will identify with Rosie and find sheer delight in the book's carefully rendered images.-Shelley Woods, Boston Public Library, MA
