Getting this baby dressed is not going to be easy!

This is the diaper, often a mess,
that goes on the baby who hates to be dressed.
"No! No! Nooo!"

Take one toddler who can't stand getting dressed. Add a mother who is determined to dress baby. The result is a laugh-filled struggle as this mommy uses all her ingenuity and powers of persuasion to get baby into diaper, T-shirt, sweater, and many layers of winter clothing. But just when she thinks she's succeeded, baby peels everything off and happily struts, naked once again. Yes! Yes! Yes!

Witty pictures full of affection reinforce the high spirits of this comic battle of wills so familiar to parents -- and toddlers -- everywhere.

“This is the baby who hates to be dressed.” The buoyant text repeats and builds on itself: “This is the diaper, often a mess, that goes on the baby who hates to be dressed.” Meanwhile, we watch Mom as she wrestles, cajoles, tumbles about, and lovingly hams it up (she wears shoes on her head).
