'Twas the night before baby decided to come,
Mom's belly was big and as tight as a drum.
We'd painted and papered the nursery with care,
In hopes that the new baby soon would be there.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In a take off of the "Night Before Christmas," the family in this story is getting ready for the birth of a new baby. Mama is about to pop, but everyone is busy painting, papering and preparing the baby's new room. Finally it is time for Mama to go to the hospital. Grandma comes to stay with her granddaughter and they make a night of it watching a movie and eating popcorn. "My grandma then tucked me / all snug in my bed / while visions of baby names / danced in my head." The new baby arrives and off they go to the hospital to greet a new baby sister. The upbeat tone may be good to help reassure kids anxious about the birth of a sibling. On the other hand, I would hate to think that all the preparations waited until the night before the baby's birth. 2002, Grosset & Dunlop, Ages 2 to 4.
