KIRKUS REVIEW

With a wagon full of toys and blankets in tow, one little boy makes the journey from baby to little boy as he moves from a crib to a big boy bed. Focusing on all of the new freedoms that he can enjoy, this three-year-old helps his mother ready his bed with new linens he has helped select. He finds that he can bounce high on the bed and even crawl under it. Even lying still on the bed is an adventure because of all the room he has. It’s not until the end of the story that Donny reveals another reason the move is necessary: Donny has a new baby brother and his crib is just the place for this new addition to sleep. Brightly colored illustrations rendered in bold watercolors keep the reassuring story fun and light. A humorous, gentle look at a very common experience. (Picture book. 2-4)
