Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Schwartz (Annabelle Swift, Kindergartner) presents the ups and downs of life with a new baby-and, with comic implausibility, allows the baby himself to narrate. He speaks frankly of his tyranny ("I know how to get anything I want"), his likes and dislikes ("I like to eat when the sun hasn't quite risen yet and then again when I decide to really get up... and then again when it's still and dark and me and Mom are the only ones up. Except for Dad"). His pleasure in being the center of attention percolates throughout his low-key but highly amusing recitation. Less overtly stated but just as palpable is the closeness within the baby's family and their joy at his arrival: their warmth and wonder spill over even to strangers (upon hearing that his young visitor is but two weeks old, the guard in the botanic garden comments, "Ahhh, and already he's seen the forsythia"). Schwartz's pitch-perfect ear and her comedienne's timing find visual expression in her upbeat, inviting gouaches. With her vignettes of exhausted but proud parents, cooing admirers and, of course, the world-is-my-oyster infant, she paints an affectionate and very funny portrait of a newly expanded family, one sure to be appreciated and enthusiastically revisited. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-"I'm a teeny tiny baby and I know how to get anything I want." So begins an infant's hilarious narration of his many needs and pleasures. His loving family gladly complies with his desire to be jiggled, tickled, patted, burped, etc. After getting a tour of the apartment in the wee hours of the morning, he enjoys the outdoor life in the parks and playgrounds of Brooklyn, New York, along with many other places around town where Mom, Dad, and Grandma have to stop. Although he appreciates compliments and questions from the new people he meets, he takes exception to the big kid who comments on his lack of hair. A highlight is his list of when he prefers to nurse. The final series of illustrations shows his groggy mom carrying him (screaming) to the bathroom mirror, where he becomes progressively calmer and finally smiles at his reflection. Everyone who has had a baby in the family will respond to the gentle humor in Schwartz's gouache paintings. They invite readers into this child's secure and stimulating world, where responsibility for his care is shared by both parents. An excellent introduction for expectant siblings-and parents.

Format: Hardcover
This is a must-have book for attachment parenting families expecting a sibling! It really helped my 4 and 2-year olds understand what a baby needs, and helped me remember that we've all been there before. Gently humorous, very baby-centered. I'm giving it as a gift to my sister struggling with her new teeny tiny one.

If only a baby could talk! This book protrays the life of an infant as seen through his eyes. It is humorous, sweet and I appreciated the reference in the beautiful illustrations to breastfeeding and attachment-carrying with the sling and Snugli. A new "must have" for baby shower gifts!

This book will ring true for every parent who has been there night and day serving every whim of their new baby. In those first trying weeks, we all need a big dose of humor which is sorely lacking in most post-natal reading material. Older kids especially love this book and will emphatically deny having ever been so demanding!

This book is very urban/Brooklyn. I love it for its sense of place and for the writing which is excellent. My daughter and I have it memorized like a poem. "I'm a teeny tiny baby and I know how to get just what I want."

This sweet story, told from the baby's point of view, is about the various things he enjoys and does throughout the day. It will make new parents laugh out loud. It is set in Brooklyn Heights and those who know the neighborhood will recognize it in the street names and artwork.

This is a great book to give older siblings an idea of what it will be like when the new baby gets here. It depicts crying, fussing, nursing, strollers, babywearing, and happy babies. It's a great little book.
