KIRKUS REVIEW

In a simple poem in the Harper Growing Tree series, Marzollo (Home Sweet Home, 1997, etc.) introduces concepts for babies that have a long u sound, but while parents can point out a shoe or count to two, a concept such as ""new"" will be too abstract. A foil mirror on the last page invites children to recognize ""you,"" but the poor quality of the mirror results in a distorted and unrecognizable image. Despite these flaws, the book is fun to read aloud, and the illustrations are welcoming in their rounded simplicity and comforting pastel colors.
