Toby is no longer a little elephant; he can pour his own milk, read his own bedtime stories (sort of), and even reach the snacks that are "just for mamas." But in this story for readers and listeners up to 7, sometimes Toby has to do everything by himself because Mama is too busy with his little sister Iris, and so he ends up with spaghetti on his nose, rain boots that don't match, and toilet paper everywhere! Luckily, Mama is there to remind Toby that no matter how big he gets, he'll always be her baby.
"This gentle story features charming illustrations done with watercolor, colored pencils, and potato stamps, which add texture and dimension…. This book shares a comforting message for young children with baby siblings." —Booklist
