Full of contagious rhythm and rhyme, this inviting picture book introduces young children to the sound of poetry, and beloved illustrator Tomie dePaola’s engaging children are the perfect match for Lin Oliver’s lighthearted poems. Together they’ve created a book to be treasured that captures the magic and fun of being new in the world.

Editorial Reviews

* “Everything about this book is child friendly, beginning with its wrap construction, the covers hugging the inside contents. . . . Highly readable poems about almost every familiar aspect of a young child’s life. . . . The words work in perfect tandem with dePaola’s happy art. . . . Framed to highlight chubby babies and toddlers of all ethnic backgrounds at the center of their world, being active and being loved.” — Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

* “In his distinctively serene illustrations, dePaola portrays children with rounded faces and smiling eyes as they navigate their environments and engage in familiar activities. . . . An ethnically diverse cast of children and the ubiquity of delights that range from beloved pets to a father’s scratchy beard give this warmhearted collection broad appeal.” — Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

* “Oliver pens a set of poems tailor-made for tiny ears and minds. . . . Spun with whimsy. . . . The poems compel gentle caresses and interaction between adult and child. Varied rhythm and rhyme schemes enrich a baby’s exploration of sound at the time when his or her developing mind needs it most. DePaola’s round-faced babes . . . wrap readers in warmth, while the square frames and initial letters mimic childhood blocks, bringing a touch of comfort and nostalgia to the package. A tenderly crafted collection that captures the joyous individual moments of infant discoveries.” — Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“Tongue-in-cheek humor. . . . Rhythmic verses address subjects of interest to preschoolers from nose to toes and are perfect for reading aloud. . . . Occasional wordplay reminiscent of classic tongue twisters peppers the text. . . . Adults will recognize universal childhood experiences. . . . A multiethnic cast of charming, cheerful children.” — School Library Journal
