The Lees' diapered dynamo starts early (the VCR reads 3:01 a.m.), with the little girl outlasting her mama sprawled out on the living room floor ("Go back to bed, baby, please, baby, please"). A breakfast of upturned Cheerios follows a few hours later ("Not on your HEAD, baby baby baby, please!"), then play time, a trip to the playground, dinner, and a bath ("Please don't splash, baby baby, please, baby!"). The fun repetition doesn't change up until the book's sweet close, as the curly-haired tyke somehow can't get to sleep ("Kiss me good night? Mama, Mama, Mama, please").
The Lees have as much or more success than their high-profile counterparts (Jerry Seinfeld: Halloween, John Lithgow: Marsupial Sue; and Jamie Lee Curtis: I'm Gonna Like Me: Letting Off a Little Self-Esteem), thanks in large part to their excellent choice of illustrator Kadir Nelson, whose work has appeared everywhere from Sports Illustrated to the New Yorker. Just as he did with Will Smith's Just the Two of Us, Nelson uses his enormous talent to inject energy and emotion into each richly colored, Rockwellian spread.

The words are pleadings from the parents of this little girl, who want her to eat her peas, to not eat the sand, and to not be such a tease, among all the other things our toddlers do and don't do.
The words flow from page to page with beautiful simplicity.

Please and baby is a bit repetitive but beautiful illustrationsPublished 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
My 3-year-old loves this book as does my 6-year-old. The repetitive language made it easy for her to remember how the story goes. She loves to "read" this book herself now. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Lisa
