Babies love books about babies. As every parent knows they will spend hours looking at images of creatures like themselves. In this book they will find a most delightful and enchanting baby with whom they can identify whether they are happy, sad, crying or sleepy.

Parents love books that they can read over and over because the language in them is so beautiful. They will be as delighted as their babies by Sarah Withrow's perfect rhyming lullaby.

Manuel Monroy's illustrations depict the state of babyhood at its most appealing and charming -- his baby is positively cuddly.

Sarah Withrow is the author of What Gloria Wants, The Black Sunshine of Goody Pryne, Box Girl and Bat Summer, which was shortlisted for a Governor General's Award and has been published in seven countries. She also writes short stories for adults, which have been published in The Fiddlehead Review, The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly and Descant. Sarah lives in Kingston, Ontario.
