Summary
Rhyming text describes the the activities in a baby's day and the words he says while going to the playground, eating dinner, and taking a bath
Review
  • PreS. As with several other recent books for the youngest child, this one is reminiscent of the works of Helen Oxenbury, both in look and content. It also has a very babylike sensibility as it takes one toddler through his day. A bouncy rhyme makes up most of the text: Baby with a blanket, / baby with a bear. / Baby playing hide-and-seek. / Wheres the baby? / There! The left-hand page shows the towheaded child playing on his blanket, which in the second image flops over his head. Facing is a full-page picture of the child playing peek-a-boo in a typical fashion. Some pages follow a similar pattern, while others, crowded with children, stretch out the focus. In one illustration, busy little children fill the park; when its time to leave, another picture shows the air full of bye-byes. Cheerful in its sensibility and adorable in execution, this is toddler-icious! -- Ilene Cooper (Reviewed 02-15-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 12, p102)
  • PreS –From morning hair brushing to “night-night” with a teddy bear, listeners take a lively tour of a baby’s day at the playground, at dinner, and in a bath. Hindley’s unfussy rhyme offers on-target opportunities for concept development: “low,” “high,” “bye,” “out.” Granström’s festive gouache-and-pencil cartoons shine in this large format. From single snapshots of the star in a red beret to the multicultural cast in the double-page playground scenes, toddlers will be engaged but never overwhelmed.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA --Gay Lynn Van Vleck (Reviewed March 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 3, p192)
  • Baby's busy day is punctuated by a few of the words and phrases he has learned. After dressing and brushing his hair, baby makes his wants clear: "Up, up, up!" Then it's playtime. "Baby with a blanket, Baby with a bear. Baby playing hide-and-seek. Where's the baby? There!" A trip to the park leads to a barrage of words. Baby's day ends with the nighttime routine common to so many families—dinner ("gone"), bath ("splash") and then bed. Young children will delight in the familiarity—the routine so similar to their own, and simple words they can chime in on. Hindley's rollicking rhymes lend the text a bouncy feel that may just transfer to the lap the child is occupying. (But don't look for consistent rhymes.) Granström's illustrations are perfect for the youngest set; there are no backgrounds, and details are both minimal and chosen to reinforce the familiar. An added bonus: Baby's body language and words are perfectly in sync, so older siblings can practice "reading" baby's cues. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews, March 15, 2006)
