KIRKUS REVIEW

Two superbabies tales for the price of one in this dos-à-dos toddler book: “Mia’s Nap Time” on one side; “Max’s Bath Time” on the flip side. The babies and animals look like enhanced-model Weebles, uncomplicated shapes defined with thick black lines. The digital art uses color-coded (pink for Mia, blue for Max; no surprises there) bordered frames and panels to convey the action. The story thread is simple: Neither baby is ready for a bath or nap and goes exploring on his/her own with pacifier in mouth. Mia crawls out of her crib to go to the playground, while Max joins a backyard animal chase, and of course, they end up sleeping and bathing—but entirely on their own terms, which should please independently minded wee ones. Short enough for short attention spans, babylike for babies to respond to and on cue for parents. (Picture book. 2-4)
