Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–Schwartz brings out her best with these vivid gouache and pen-and-ink illustrations of a family getting a toddler ready for bed. A berry pie cools on the kitchen windowsill as Dad gives baby a nighttime swing outside. Soon, the parents “pick a baby/From the babyberry tree” and plop him into the tub. Bath over, he runs off, finds the pie, and dumps it on his head, then gleefully gets captured for a re-bubble. Babyberry gets sprinkled with “sugar” (powder) in tickly spots before being tucked into the “pie crust” (blankets) for a kiss good night. Frederick's rhyming text, repetition, and wordplay amplify the fun in this yummy mix of old-fashioned cozy and modern setting.Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Format: Hardcover
This is a sweet and very tender story about a baby and his loving parents who are readying him for bed. This book doesn't have the same wry sense of humor as Pete's a Pizza by William Steig but the premise is very similar. After a busy day of play, when the moon comes out, "it's time to bring the baby in for babyberry pie!" Baby receives a thorough bath, and then scampers out of his parents' reach, accidentally plopping a cooling pie on the windowsill on his head. There he sits, Jack Horner-like, with triumphantly purple-stained cheeks and fingers. This warrants a second bath, followed by a powdering of "sugar" (actually, baby powder) until he is tucked in to his "pie crust," otherwise known as a crib with blankets.

I enjoyed the gentle, rhyming text and well as the gouache and ink illustrations which alternated between colorful full-bleed double-spread pictures of the little suburban blue house with the dark night sky, and clean single-page images of the round-headed, chubby cheerful baby. The lilac endpapers feature a repeating motif of berries. The family's yard appears enormous and the very round-faced moon with a funny little slip of a body dances along, watching the proceedings with interest, until she too falls asleep, snugged into a cloud outside baby's window. The mild pace and familiar family surroundings make this book a pleasant bedtime read. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
My Review: This modern day lullaby plays on words of a "sweet little Berrybaby Pie". This story has the potential to be the next classic lullaby such as "Rock-a-by Baby" or "The Itsy bitsy Spider". Give your imagination a chance and don't think too much into the story or the plot. Just recite the cute little verses in rhyme to soothe your little one off to sleep every night. The artwork is charmingly done and endears the story as it goes along. The Berrybaby proves to be rambunctious as are most toddlers that need to be put down for the night. This just adds a sense of both reality and adventure for the little one you're reading too. This little jewel with its endearing artwork has the potential to be a classic that will be part of your child's favorite memories.

A perfect bedtime story and I highly recommend this book.

My son loves this book. He loves being the pie filling and getting tucked into the pie crust at night. :-)

This was one of the first books that was a "repeater" - I enjoyed it as much as my daughter and then sought after more books by this author and I came across, "Hide & Squeak" and we not own that book. Love this author and everything about the books - wish she had more!
