It is positive and funny and the pictures are perfect.When my niece was expecting i went looking for it and found it to be out of print.I wrote the authour Fran Manushkin aksign if it would be reprinted and she replied to me!I am hoping it will be reprinted ..in the meantime i found it second hand.It is the best book ever.
I purchased this book in 1988. I found the illustrations and story to be charming even at the age of 18 and many years before even thinking of having a child. Then, when I was pregnant years later, I pulled out the already ragged book and cried over the anticipation to hug and kiss my own baby --- something that the baby in this book finds to be most rewarding --- once she decides to Come Out! I have read this funny story to 3 year olds expecting a baby brother/sister of their own. I have loaned this book out to all that I love who find themselves expecting. Everyone finds both tears and a smile (even a giggle)here. I'm going to stock up for baby showers!
Originally published in 1972, this book has been reprinted by Star Bright Books and would make a lovely gift for anyone convinced that their baby is just never going to come out (I can relate to that fear).
My favourite part:
I really liked the pictures of the baby inside the mom's belly. They reminded me of Maurice Sendak's characters: simple, charming and full of lots of opinions. You can tell the baby is full of personality, even in the simple drawings. I also really like the old-fashioned clothing of all the other characters, like the book was originally published in the 1870's instead of the 1970's.
I really like Baby Come Out. I especially like when the baby says, "Okay here I come!" after the father kisses Mrs. Tracey on the stomach. I also liked when the big sister said, "We know how to get the baby to come out" and then she yelled at the baby to come out. That was the funny part because the baby said, "You yelled at me so I'm not coming out." That was so funny.
This review originally appeared on my blog, Cozy Little Book Journal, and was based on a digital review copy received from NetGalley.
