KIRKUS REVIEW

A catalogue list of all the different types of babies begins as their diapered forms start tumbling across the pages. “There are big babies / and little babies, / do-lots and / do-little babies, / happy babies, / cross babies, / and ‘I’ll show / you who’s boss’ babies.” While there are many unique personalities featured here, one characteristic seems common to all babies: their propensity to giggle when tickled. A prompt, invites the reader to test this theory. “Let’s try it: ‘Tickly wickly wee!’ ” Soft, subtly shaded watercolors perfectly render the many babies and toys in this latest poetic celebration. A final verse invites readers to celebrate the baby to whom they are reading. “The baby that I love the best, with all my heart, is . . . YOU!” As readers turn the page, a mirror peeks out from the inside of the back cover, inviting babies to take a look at that best-loved one. A perfect choice for an anytime snuggle.
