*Starred Review* Adorable toddlers are the staple of many picture books. The children pictured here are not only cute but also doing all sorts of things young viewers will respond to, making this an ideal book for sharing. On restful pages of sage, aqua, and orchid, little ones of all ethnicities giggle, play, and eat, and, during the course of three pages, one towhead learns to walk--with plenty of wobbling in between. Sometimes there are several babies to a page; sometimes one takes up a whole spread. Close-ups feature a naked, wiggling babe (naughty bits covered) looking for its toes. Another shows a little girl in her high chair, peas and tomatoes all over face, bib, and tray: "Warm and squelchy, / scratchy, rough, sticky squishy. . . . Time for a bath!" Then comes the bath, and lots of bubbles: "Float / soap / splash / wash." The sheer exuberance of these children will make everyone, young and old, smile. An old-fashioned picture book, yet one that is totally interactive. Ilene Cooper
