Editorial Reviews

"What a charmer! Anyone who's ever had a baby around the house (or been one, for that matter) will respond to this. The straightforward text begins, I'm a teeny tiny baby, and goes on to describe the likes and dislikes, wants and doesn't wants of the sweet, little dictator who's running the show. The charm of the words comes from their matter-of-factness (I like to be exclaimed over and oohed over and ahhhed over or changed or fed), but the words also serve as a springboard for Schwartz' wonderful artwork, which amplifies all the goings-on. For instance, when Baby discourses on his predilection for transportation, Sometimes I want to ride in my Snugli or in my stroller or in a car or a bus or my swing or my sling or my other Snugli, the artwork is six cameos, set against a wide expanse of white, showing a remarkably sanguine baby enjoying his various modes of conveyance. There is also delightful full-page art, such as the picture of the big kid (five or six years old, maybe) who points out the baby has no hair (which I didn't appreciate). This is more than clever, however. Schwartz realistically captures the altered relationship between Mom and Dad, the feeling of being at the very beginning of your life, and, of course, the head-over-heels devotion the world accords to teeny, tiny babies." -Booklist, Starred Review"Affectionate and very funny." -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"An excellent introduction for expectant siblings--and parents." -School Library Journal, Starred Review"Completely winning." -Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
