Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 3-6. What a charmer! Anyone who's ever had a baby around the house (or been one, for that matter) will respond to this. The straightforward text begins, I'm a teeny tiny baby, and goes on to describe the likes and dislikes, wants and doesn't wants of the sweet, little dictator who's running the show. The charm of the words comes from their matter-of-factness (I like to be exclaimed over and oohed over and ahhhed over or changed or fed), but the words also serve as a springboard for Schwartz' wonderful artwork, which amplifies all the goings-on. For instance, when Baby discourses on his predilection for transportationSometimes I want to ride in my Snugli or in my stroller or in a car or a bus or my swing or my sling or my other Snuglithe artwork is six cameos, set against a wide expanse of white, showing a remarkably sanguine baby enjoying his various modes of conveyance. There is also delightful full-page art, such as the picture of the big kid (five or six years old, maybe) who points out the baby has no hair (which I didn't appreciate). This is more than clever, however. Schwartz realistically captures the altered relationship between Mom and Dad, the feeling of being at the very beginning of your life, and, of course, the head-over-heels devotion the world accords to teeny, tiny babies.

From Kirkus Reviews

A baby is taken on a tour of Brooklyn Heights in this book written for the older brothers and sisters of new arrivals. Older siblings will take gleeful delight in Schwartz's acknowledgement that infants know how to get anything they want and, with a single cry, can make hordes of relatives stampede to attend them. Yet they undoubtedly will also find themselves bemused afresh at the way a baby can be hypnotized by something as simple as a plant with a single drooping leaf, or the space ``right above'' Mom's face. The story is engagingly narrated by the baby itself, and the pictures that accompany each of the infant's statements are completely winning--from the baby's various sleeping poses to the weary young mother's tired, if happy, face. The power and grace in Schwartz's spare style and language lies in the fact that she never condescends to young readers--she just compares notes.

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.
