Simple pictures and text show a baby’s day filled with objects of all colors, textures, and shapes. Baby bunny is scooped from his crib into the loving arms of his mother, then sits patiently in his high chair, receiving spoonfuls of food from his father. Soon it is bath time and then time to get dressed for the day. Opposing pages to these images feature the items necessary for these activities: pajamas, a cup and a spoon, a rubber ducky, socks, booties, and a playsuit named in lower-case text under the object. Cut-paper collages are layered together to create visually stimulating illustrations that will interest even the smallest child. Endpapers consist of graphic black-and-white designs perfect for young babies, while the lyrical text, combined with brightly colored images, will entice slightly older children. Too soon it is time for a nap, but readers can have fun imagining the busy activities ahead for this baby and his parents. Stiff pages with rounded corners and a small format make this a perfect choice for tiny hands. (Picture book. 0-3)
