Publisher: Candlewick

Henderson’s latest is a celebration of babyhood and all the wonderful daily activities and developmental milestones that a child will experience. Verbs take center stage in this outing, describing how babies and young toddlers wiggle and move. A multicultural array of babies go through a typical day—they play clothing peek-a-boo, explore food with all their senses, take a bath and get groomed and describe how they feel. In the meantime, their bodies do all sorts of amazing things—giggle, wash, grow, sneeze, yawn, hiccup and poop. Howard’s exuberant pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are the perfect fit for the text. He completely fills the pages with flawlessly captured facial expressions, pudgy feet and body language. Just right for sharing with a little one on a lap (or for those whose laps are disappearing), this is a must for any library catering to young families. (Picture book. 2-4)
