Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Booklist Starred Review

"What a charmer! Anyone who's ever had a baby around the house (or been one, for that matter) will respond to this. The straightforward text begins, I'm a teeny tiny baby, and goes on to describe the likes and dislikes, wants and doesn't wants of the sweet, little dictator who's running the show. The charm of the words comes from their matter-of-factness (I like to be exclaimed over and oohed over and ahhhed over or changed or fed), but the words also serve as a springboard for Schwartz' wonderful artwork, which amplifies all the goings-on. For instance, when Baby discourses on his predilection for transportation, Sometimes I want to ride in my Snugli or in my stroller or in a car or a bus or my swing or my sling or my other Snugli, the artwork is six cameos, set against a wide expanse of white, showing a remarkably sanguine baby enjoying his various modes of conveyance. There is also delightful full-page art, such as the picture of the big kid (five or six years old, maybe) who points out the baby has no hair (which I didn't appreciate). This is more than clever, however. Schwartz realistically captures the altered relationship between Mom and Dad, the feeling of being at the very beginning of your life, and, of course, the head-over-heels devotion the world accords to teeny, tiny babies."

Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Affectionate and very funny."

School Library Journal Starred Review

"An excellent introduction for expectant siblings—and parents."

Kirkus Reviews Starred Review

"Completely winning."

Publishers Weekly
A Teeny Tiny Baby by Amy Schwartz, first published in 1994, reemerges with a washable padded cover, as a newborn sheds light on his or her experience. The infant narrator tells readers about where the child has been, likes and dislikes, and how to get what baby wants. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Schwartz (Annabelle Swift, Kindergartner) presents the ups and downs of life with a new baby-and, with comic implausibility, allows the baby himself to narrate. He speaks frankly of his tyranny (``I know how to get anything I want''), his likes and dislikes (``I like to eat when the sun hasn't quite risen yet and then again when I decide to really get up... and then again when it's still and dark and me and Mom are the only ones up. Except for Dad''). His pleasure in being the center of attention percolates throughout his low-key but highly amusing recitation. Less overtly stated but just as palpable is the closeness within the baby's family and their joy at his arrival: their warmth and wonder spill over even to strangers (upon hearing that his young visitor is but two weeks old, the guard in the botanic garden comments, ``Ahhh, and already he's seen the forsythia''). Schwartz's pitch-perfect ear and her comedienne's timing find visual expression in her upbeat, inviting gouaches. With her vignettes of exhausted but proud parents, cooing admirers and, of course, the world-is-my-oyster infant, she paints an affectionate and very funny portrait of a newly expanded family, one sure to be appreciated and enthusiastically revisited. Ages 2-6. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This may be a teeny tiny baby, but he knows what he wants and he describes the world of doting parents and grandparents that lovingly surrounds him. He knows that if he starts to cry all the adults in his life will rush to find out what is wrong. He describes all the different ways that he is cuddled, carried, and exclaimed over. He loves the outing—be it in a stroller, a sling, or a Snugli, as he heads out to the park and accompanies his parents on chores such as going to the cleaners, deli, and drugstore. What a delight having people remark on how big he is, but he is truly offended by a big boy who remarks that this baby does not have hair. At just two weeks, he visits the botanic gardens, but frankly, as most new parents know, those first few weeks are spent feeding the baby, and if you are nursing, it seems like babies eat day and night. It is both wonderful and exhausting. The other thing that little ones do is sleep a lot and this little one is no exception—he sleeps in the car, on the sofa, and just about anywhere. He is also curious about this world which is all so new. There are so many things to look at and one of the things that he seems to like best is looking in the mirror at himself with his tired but loving mother planting a kiss on his sweet head. A perfect shower or new baby gift.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-``I'm a teeny tiny baby and I know how to get anything I want.'' So begins an infant's hilarious narration of his many needs and pleasures. His loving family gladly complies with his desire to be jiggled, tickled, patted, burped, etc. After getting a tour of the apartment in the wee hours of the morning, he enjoys the outdoor life in the parks and playgrounds of Brooklyn, New York, along with many other places around town where Mom, Dad, and Grandma have to stop. Although he appreciates compliments and questions from the new people he meets, he takes exception to the big kid who comments on his lack of hair. A highlight is his list of when he prefers to nurse. The final series of illustrations shows his groggy mom carrying him (screaming) to the bathroom mirror, where he becomes progressively calmer and finally smiles at his reflection. Everyone who has had a baby in the family will respond to the gentle humor in Schwartz's gouache paintings. They invite readers into this child's secure and stimulating world, where responsibility for his care is shared by both parents. An excellent introduction for expectant siblings-and parents.-Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA
