Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The dynamic, best-selling team of Lin Oliver and Tomie dePaola have created a charming collection of baby poems that makes the perfect gift for baby showers and first birthdays.

For babies and toddlers, each moment is full of wonder and discovery. This delightful collection of original poems celebrates the everyday things that enthrall little ones, such as playing peekaboo, banging pots and pans, splashing at bath time, and cuddling at bedtime. Full of contagious rhythm and rhyme, this inviting picture book introduces young children to the sound of poetry, and beloved illustrator Tomie dePaolas engaging children are the perfect match for Lin Olivers lighthearted poems. Together theyve created a book to be treasured that captures the magic and fun of being new in the world.

Review:

"Twenty-three short poems written in the first-person viewpoints of infants and toddlers muse on the small discoveries and quietly joyful moments that are part of early childhood. Among them: learning to make new sounds; discovering one's toes, bellybutton, mouth, and nose ('My tongue is pink/ And wet, I think./ In and out it goes./ It's in my mouth/ A little south/ Of where you'll find my nose'); cozying up to a parent; and making messes ('Watch me scoot across the floor./ I'm heading for the kitchen drawer/ To knock the pots and pans around/ And throw the dish towels on the ground'). In his distinctively serene illustrations, dePaola portrays children with rounded faces and smiling eyes as they navigate their environments and engage in familiar activities. Each scene is encapsulated within a tidy box, contributing to the overall ambiance of security and comfort, while creating the impression of framed photographs of milestone moments. An ethnically diverse cast of children and the ubiquity of delights that range from beloved pets to a father's scratchy beard give this warmhearted collection broad appeal. Up to age 2."
