This delightful picture book is about three babies named Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. The adults who love them do things to them that make them say more, more, more. This book¿s illustrations show the actions of the story perfectly. A young child would be able look at the pictures and follow along with the story as it is read to them. Be ready to here them say, ¿More, More, More!¿

This is a short book for prechoolers. It depicts three babies, Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. These three babies are depicted playing with a father (Little Guy), a grandmother (Little Pumpkin), ad a mother (Little Bird). I is a simple story of the love between family. The second child, Little Pumpkin, is African-American but his grandmother is not. I applaud the author for including the existene of interracial families. The pages are filled with bright colors, which hold the child's attention.

We borrowed this book from the library and my almost 2 year old loves it. We are buying our own copy. The pictures are wonderful and the text is repetitive in every story. My daughter loves to read this story for nap/bed time because the last story is about a little girl who is asleep. I like the way that this book is fun and exciting, yet ends in a relaxing tone. This is a great book for 2 year olds!!

I love this book so much. I love the biracial kid, just thrown in there, like it's no big deal (and so it shouldn't be!), and I love the not-quite-mine dialect, and I love the illustrations and the clear love between the grown-ups and their kids.Not one bad word to say about this book, that's me.

3 adults show the love and adoration they feel for a young child. There are three different families but there is a common thread throughout. The illustrations are beautifully done and enhance the overall story.Classroom connections: This book could be used to help explain the Caldecott award. It could also be used to introduce literary devices such as repetition, and motifs.

It is based on 3 adults and the love and adoration they feel for a child. There are three different families but they are all connected. It shows you that even if people are different they still can have things in common. Plus, the illustrations are amazing. This book could be used to help explain what the Caldecott award is or introduce what motives and repetitions are.

Review: This book is a good example of realistic fiction because it deals with events that could happen in real life. It tells the story of three babies who are given loving attention by three different adults.Level: Primary

My daughter is biracial and very close with her caucasian grandmother, so this book perfectly depicted their relationship. It was one of our favorite books when she was little (she's now 10).

This book is a story of three young child. Two of which have parents, who look similar to them. One child, 'Little Pumpkin', does not. His grandparent- not even parent- is that of a different race. I see nothing wrong with combining different races but it should be done throught out the book. I, in being a African- American, find this book is degrading because it apears in the minds of childs that African- American kids are raise by the grandparents. This book should show equality or inequality through the entire book not just when there is an african-american child involved.
