Overview

Who are you, baby newly born who's this little babe?

Baby burritoes . . .
are held very tight.
Banana babies . . .

Leaky babies . . .
leak.

No matter what kind of baby they are, all new babies see, hear, think, and feel so many different things. But most of all they feel loved. Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech and Caldecott Medal winner David Diaz give beautiful voice to that love in this celebration of family and the joy a new baby brings.

Short poems and songs reflect the life of a newborn baby, as he or she meets various relatives and learns about the world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A quartet of titles takes song lyrics as their inspiration this fall. Sharon Creech's clever and funny words in Who's That Baby?: New Baby Songs launch David Diaz's visual flight of fancy. Batik-like paintings show baby snug in a multi-colored quilt and literally tucked into a basket ("A tisket, a tasket/ a baby in the basket!"), and in the arms of Grandpa decked out in a teal, star-studded coat. The newborn, who narrates, also listens to his or her guitar-strumming daddy dressed in rainbow colors: "My daddy plays me music/ 'cause he love-love-loves me." Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This book is full of poems, rhymes and songs to sing to infants and toddlers. The verses pertain to different family members and their love for a new baby. The topics range widely from how much a baby leaks, to them snuggling up to a loved one. The main purpose for this book appears to provide verses for adults to enjoy while singing them to an infant or toddler. Some of the poems contain verses that are easy to put a tune to such as "A tisket, a tasket, a baby in a basket!" However, many of the poems were difficult to sing along to, making it sound strained to the ears. The illustrations created by using bright colors and patterns of geometric shapes provide eye-catching scenes of fictional family members for young ones to look at. 2005, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 mo. to 2.
—Angela Olkey
School Library Journal
PreS-In 16 "songs," Creech celebrates a newborn's world from the infant's point of view. For example, in "Football Baby": "My daddy thinks/I am a football./I think that/he is mistaken./I hope that/someone will tell him/that I am a baby./his little sweet baby./-I am not/a little pigskin." Other selections tell of looking "like a stuffed banana," of "gazing at pictures of me me me!" and of "Blurping milk/on Mommy's clothes/and Daddy's clothes." "Pearly Girl" and "Joy Boy" are charming displays of self-confidence. As songs, the words do not really scan or rhyme, especially without actual music to move the rhythm along. Despite this, the imagery is lovely and babylike. However, the humor and sensibilities are clearly geared to new parents. With warm, muted earth tones and intriguing patterns, Diaz's gorgeous illustrations perfectly capture the love surrounding these infants.-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Except for the first and last entries, Creech writes all of these poems in first-person baby's voice. They are clearly really written for parents and grandparents and they are pretty gooey: "A tisket, a tasket / a baby in the basket! / I'm so snug / and I'm so warm / I'm so cute / I'm just born!" There are verses about swaddled babies, "Baby Burrito," "Banana Baby," ditties about daddies, moms and "Two Big Grandmas." Newbery Medal-winner Creech is a new grandmother, but she never rises to the lovely levels of Stephanie Calmenson's Welcome, Baby! (2002) or Cynthia Rylant's Good Morning Sweetie Pie (2001). Diaz's artwork, however, is just gorgeous. Using his extraordinary mastery of pattern, his babies and their relatives look like stained-glass figures or hieratic saints. The colors glow and the shapes, held by his sinuous line and ensorcelled by floral, marine, astral and geometric designs, are a wonder. (Picture book. 1-3)

Meet the Author

Sharon Creech

Sharon Creech is the author of the Newbery Medal winner Walk Two Moons and the Newbery Honor Book The Wanderer. Her other work includes the novels The Great Unexpected, The Unfinished Angel, Hate That Cat, The Castle Corona, Replay, Heartbeat, Granny Torrelli Makes Soup, Ruby Holler, Love That Dog, Bloomability, Absolutely Normal Chaos, Chasing Redbird, and Pleasing the Ghost, as well as three picture books: A Fine, Fine School; Fishing in the Air; and Who's That Baby? Ms. Creech and her husband live in Maine.

David Diaz has illustrated numerous award-winning books for children, including smoky night by Eve Bunting, for which he was awarded the Caldecott Medal; The Wanderer by Sharon Creech, which received a Newbery Honor; and Me, Frida by Amy Novesky, a Pura Belpré Honor Award winner. Mr. Diaz lives in Southern California.

Good To Know

In her interview with Barnes & Noble.com, Creech shared some fun facts about herself:

"One of my most interesting jobs was in graduate school, working with the Federal Theatre Project archives (a Library of Congress collection, then based at George Mason University). I catalogued original illustrations for set and costume designs, some by Orson Welles. It was fascinating work!"

"I once fell 20 feet from a tree, was knocked unconscious, and when I picked myself up and straggled home, my parents thought I was making it up. However, when my brother and I fabricated a story about an encounter with a bear, they believed that! So maybe I learned very early on that fiction was more interesting to listeners!"

"As readers can probably tell from my books, I love the outdoors. I love to hike, kayak, and swim. I also love to read (which is probably not a surprise) and I love the theater and art museums. I especially love all the instruments of art: inks, pens, paintbrushes, watercolors and oils, fine papers and canvases, and although I love to mess around with these tools and objects, I have minimal artistic skills."
