Booklist Review: "PreS. If there's one pastime that most babies and toddlers enjoy, it's watching other babies and toddlers. This lively picture book provides that pleasure without the bother of arranging a play date. The short, rhyming text lists all kinds of babies: "There are babies who like teddies, / there are babies who like muddles, / there are babies who like bathtimes, / there are babies who like cuddles." Each refrain appears on a separate page along with an illustration that spotlights one or two babies hugging teddy bears, making a mess, taking a bath, or cuddling together. The clean page design, warm colors, and well-drawn babies make each picture an engaging opportunity to look at, talk about, or simply enjoy. The racial mix of characters broadens the book's appeal. The last double-page spread spotlights the baby that the reader loves best; it features a Mylar mirror along with the punch line: "YOU!" This playful ending springs naturally from the book's consistently light, sunny tone. Young children and their parents will find this short, simple picture book irresistible. --Carolyn Phelan"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Here surveying babydom, the pair previously teamed for Ball and My Do It! find adorable differences and similarities among their multicultural, dumpling-face population: "There are big babies/ and little babies,/ do-lots and/ do-little babies,/.../ wobbly babies, nibbly babies,/ and all babies are/ dribbly babies." Williams's (Let's Do That Again!, Children's Forecasts, Nov. 25) babies share the same moonface and sparse hair, but he combines their dot eyes and tiny mouths into a host of individual combinations, and every watercolor portrait will elicit giggles of recognition from very young readers-whether an infant indignantly shakes a rattle at a sand-toy-doll (demonstrating an "I'll show you who's boss" baby), or a tyke sits proudly in the midst of a big mess, a pair of pants perched jauntily on his head (for "babies who like muddles"). Of course, it's the baby being read to that is Numero Uno-and in case there's any doubt who that is, a mirror is encased in the inside back cover. Ages 1-4. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
