KIRKUS REVIEW

O’Keefe offers a genuine book for babies that is not a board book or a gimmicky format. Rhyming text of two to four words per spread pithily describes a day with a baby bear and its parents: “Baby laugh. / Baby cry. / Baby wet. / Baby dry. Baby work is never done. / Good thing baby work is fun.” Spowart’s simple, soft-edged pastels set against white backgrounds illustrate baby playing peek-a-boo, eating in a high chair, blowing bubbles, undressing for bed and being read to by mama and papa. Blanket cozy, as tickling as counting piggy toes and as sweet as “kissy-poo,” this treat calls out for a rocking chair, a lap and a baby. These three bears are “just right” for repeated enjoyment. (Picture book. 1-3)
