Who are you, baby
newly born
who's this little babe?

Baby burritoes . . .
are held very tight.
Banana babies . . .
are bundled up in the cold.
Leaky babies . . .

No matter what kind of baby they are, all new babies see, hear, think, and feel so many different things. But most of all they feel loved. Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech and Caldecott Medal winner David Diaz give beautiful voice to that love in this celebration of family and the joy a new baby brings.

/ I’m so snug / and I’m so warm / I’m so cute / I’m just born!” There are verses about swaddled babies, “Baby Burrito,” “Banana Baby,” ditties about daddies, moms and “Two Big Grandmas.” Newbery Medal–winner Creech is a new grandmother, but she never rises to the lovely levels of Stephanie Calmen...
