reSchool-Grade 2--A nearly rhyming text buoyantly proves that Baby Knows Best. For this bubbling baby girl, keys are more fun than toys; newspapers more satisfying than books; a bath plug more engaging than tub toys; a birthday suit more comfortable than any clothes; and cuddles superior to stroller, bouncer, or playpen. In the midst of an inviting clutter and a welcoming family, this little miss enjoys the bliss of infancy in a loving home. Both Dad and Brother are active participants in the nurturing. Even the dog helps out, cleaning up spilled food. A pleasing verse is flawed by occasional mismatches: bells with well, stuff with us. Still, the target audience will be so enchanted with Baby that they won't mind a rough rhyme, and the beaming, cartoon illustrations are sure to delight. The result is a winning read-aloud for parent and child, sibling to sibling, or teacher to class, and a gem for toddler and preschool collections.
