Wouldn't it be grand to be a baby? No worries, no woes, the whole world doing everything for you. That's not how it is, suggests this sly backward glance at babyhood for readers up to 7. "I'd like to eat some pizza, macaroni, or beef stew, / But I haven't got a single tooth, so I can't even chew." This tale of soggy diapers, mushy meals, and sleepin' behind (crib) bars features a sweetly hapless tot, and Lauren Tobia's charming ink and pencil illustrations of a baby's everyday world contain a few subtle homages to the blues.
