PreS-Gr 1-Ten four-line rhymes tell of a baby's day from morning to bedtime. The verses are simple, some with a staccato rhythm; others have softer sounds. However, there is an awkwardness due to some unusual word choices, possibly reflecting the book's British origins. For instance: "One day I'll sit botty/on what they call potty./Now I do in cotty/what I call a dotty." The brightly textured illustrations are heavy in crosshatching. The child who is the focal point looks to be a different age from one picture to the next. Overall, it is doubtful that the intended audience will be drawn to either the verses or the art. Pass this by, and give parents one of many great Mother Goose books instead.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
