This New York Times Best Illustrated Book captures all the sweet and touching moments in Baby's day, from Mama’s first cuddle in the morning to Daddy’s last kiss at bedtime.
Parents and their little ones will enjoy seeing themselves in the simple, straightforward observations of the routines of a baby, including Baby’s first shaky steps, Baby’s much needed nap, the comfort of Baby’s bottle, a steamy bath, and a bedtime story.
Like Mem Fox’s Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, this charming and joyful picture book by Polly Kanevsky and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo, the recipient of a previous New York Times Best Illustrated Award and an Ezra Jack Keats Award, will surely appeal to families with young children.

PreS-Gr 2—Here is a book that parents and grandparents, older brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, and caregivers will read repeatedly to the babies they love. It's a simple and comprehensive list of the daily activities of an almost-walking baby and his loving family. As it happens, he lives in an urban environment and spends the day with his daddy while his sister's at school and his mother is gone—presumably to work. In a three-page sequence that will endear the book to librarians, the little guy goes to a storytime at the library (and is taken out when he's "starting to fuss"). A shopping trip, a playground visit, meals, an under-table tea party with Sister, bathtime, a story, a song, and bedtime round out Baby's day, all interspersed with plenty of cuddling. Yoo depicts folks pursuing their individual interests in ways that any baby would enjoy examining: another infant is riding behind his father on a bicycle, and there are dogs, trucks and changing weather to notice. The linoleum block prints are warm and homey. The palette is mostly drawn from autumn leaves, until moonlight shines into the blue bedroom where the baby succumbs to sleep. This is the sort of book you finish with a sigh of contentment.—Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Library, NY
