What did you like about the book?  This is a book for new parents and babies that reads like an instruction manual.  Adults will find it humorous: “Many activities are available for you to enjoy, including, but not limited to: Sleeping and Waking, Eating and burping, Pooping and More Pooping.” The illustrations are made up of black and yellow icons that resemble road signs.  Suitable as a gift to new parents.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  This isn’t really a book to share with babies.  Although they will enjoy the mirror on the first page, the content is not something with child appeal.

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is a cute gift for new or expectant parents.

Who should buy this book?  Large public libraries

Where would you shelve it? Board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles?  No
