Go back to bed,
baby, please, baby, please.
Not on your HEAD,
baby baby baby, please!...

From moments fussy to fond, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Spike Lee and his wife, producer Tonya Lewis Lee, present a behind-the-scenes look at the chills, spills, and unequivocal thrills of bringing up baby! Vivid illustrations from celebrated artist Kadir Nelson evoke toddler-hood from sandbox to high chair to crib, and families everywhere will delight in sharing these exuberant moments again and again.

This is my daughter's favorite book. She is 18 months old and sees a little of herself in every page. I am a pediatrician and this captures her behavior perfectly.
