Babyberry Pie

Babyberry Pie Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How do you bake a babyberry pie? Pick one wiggly baby from the babyberry tree. Pop him in the tub and scrub clean. Add sugar to his nose and toes. Tuck him into a warm pie crust. And donandrsquo;t forget a kiss goodnight!

Thatandrsquo;s the perfect recipe for a babyberry pieandmdash;and a playful, peaceful bedtime. (Just don't let that little giggleberry wiggle away!)

Review:

"Reminiscent of Bruce Degen's Jamberry with its lilting rhythm and gentle illustrations, this amiable bedtime book ostensibly gives a recipe for making babyberry pie, but ends up modeling a loving family's bedtime ritual. The book opens as a father pushes a baby in a backyard swing and the mother welcomes them inside: 'First you pick a baby/ From the babyberry tree--/ One who's sweet,/ A cuddly treat--/ And bring him home to me.' Schwartz (Tiny and Hercules) and novelist Frederick (the Mother-Daughter Book Club series), making her picture book debut, show the loving parents bathing the baby ('Scrub his toes,/ His ears and nose,/ With a kiss and a rub-a-dub-dub!'). When the baby makes a dash for freedom ('Catch that little giggle- berry, wiggleberry one!') and tips a freshly made pie off the windowsill, his parents cheerfully give him another bath and tuck him in. Schwartz's cozy patterned wallpaper and fabrics lend a homey mood to the illustrations, rendered in gouache and pen-and-ink, and Frederick's verbal imagery of piecrust quilts and sugary baby powder help create a book as sweet as pie. Ages 3 — 7. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Frederick and Schwartz cook up a delicious read-aloud treat for bathtime, bedtime, and every time between. Full color.
