Okay, I’m just going to gush: I LOVED THIS BOOK!
The illustrations are humorous and whimsical, with much to see upon careful examination. The rhymes are clever, and the message is fun for both adults and children.
It’s a rhyming picture book, so there’s not a whole lot more that I can say about it, other than that I would totally buy this book as a baby gift. It’s one that is bound to be asked for over and over again.
Possible Objectionable Material:
Childish hijinks. Dad reads the paper at the table in his (not at all revealing) underwear. Mom loses her temper (mildly).
Who Might Like This Book:
Those who like a fun read-aloud that’s perfect for snuggling together and examining the pictures.

Thank you, NetGalley, for the ARC.
Children will love this story. In a kitchen, on a normal morning, baby sits in his highchair and is going to set a series of events in motion.
I love the illustrations in this story. The kitchen is chaotic with messes everywhere. When mom finds her favourite teapot broken on the floor she wants to know who broke it. Was it baby sitting in his highchair of sister sitting in a mess on the floor. Maybe it was brother hanging from the fan on the ceiling or father sitting amidst the mess reading the paper in his underwear. What about the family pets? A humourous read and a delightful story poking fun at families and the things that happen when there is too much going on. The illustrations are colourful, busy, and appealing. I recommend this book to family, class, school and public libraries.
