When the birds begin their singing
and the sun begins its sunning
and the morning glories
open up all blue...
there's a mama or a papa
or a gramma somewhere saying:
"Good morning, Sweetie Pie,
how are you?"

From waking up and eating breakfast to bath and bedtime, these eight tender and gleeful poems celebrate the precious, everyday moments shared by parent and child. Through the lilting verse of Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and illustrations beautifully crafted by best-selling artist Jane Dyer, the energy and exhilaration that sweetens every instance of toddlerhood will be relived again and again.

While her characterizations occasionally teeter on the brink of sentimentality, her sensitivity to contemporary stylings and mores keep the paintings firmly planted in a child's universal experience.
