More, More, More, Said the Baby: Three Love Stories

by Vera B. Williams

Published by Greenwillow, 1990
32 pages
ISBN: 0-688-09174-1

Ages 9months - 3 years

Affectionate names for active toddlers (Little Guy, Little Pumpkin and Little Bird); exploratory activities emphasizing basic human features (belly button, toes and eyes); repetitive baby-focused narratives centered on three times of every toddler's day (waking up, being up and falling asleep); three loving adults guiding and caring for the babies (a daddy, a grandma and a mama); and color triads expressing the emotionally rich short pieces which "catch up" listeners and receivers are all combined in exuberantly unified paintings full of encircling love. The rhythmic text is painted within the larger rhythmic paintings. The handsome jacket art is harmonious with the warmth and excitement within this diversely pictured 11 1/4" x 10" world of color-filled words and images. Winner, 1990 CCBC Caldecott Book Discussion.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
