It is about a baby in a close, loving family of a mom, a dad, a baby, and a nice gray cat. The baby has a merry, active day, "driving" a toy car in his carseat, playing with pots and pans, reading a little book, taking a bath, and doing other baby things. What makes it special is that real-life babies/toddlers who are hearing the story will recognize all the things the baby is doing as part of their day, too. The words have a nice rhythm and rhyme to them, and the pictures are bright, colorful, and detailed. My little guy liked pointing to the cat.
Sometimes, as a parent, I dread hearing "read it again!" after the fourth or fifth time I've already read a book, but this one stood up to repeated readings. Even better, the words are easy to memorize (it is kind of like a poem) so we could say lines from the book to each other even when we weren't reading. It was like a private joke.
The Baby Goes Beep has already become a favorite in my family.
As a side note, this book was a Charlotte Zolotow honor book for 2004 -- the award given for the best picture book writing of the year (the Caldecott is for illustration). Kudos to O'Connell!
