Ma! There's Nothing to Do Here!: A Word from Your Baby-In-Waiting
Synopses & Reviews
Ma there's nothing to do here complains the precocious protagonist of this rhyming tale set entirely in utero. It's not exactly a scintillating experience spending nine months in your mother's womb. You're just stuck there at the end of that dumb bungee cord (a.k.a. the umbilical cord), with nothing whatsoever to do but slosh around. But, oh, the endless joys you have to look forward to as you listen to the tick-tock of ma's happy heart clock and await that happy day when you finally come out to play.
A precocious baby is beyond bored in his mother's womb. He's ready to play on the swingset, meet other boys and girls, and to canoe! But until then—what will he do to pass the time?
