Review & Giveaway: Babyberry Pie by Heather Vogel Frederick “Take one wiggly baby, scrubbed clean. Add sugar to his nose and toes. Tuck him into a warm pie crust. Don’t forget a kiss good night! That’s the perfect recipe for a babyberry pie- and a peaceful bedtime. (Just don’t let that little giggleberry wiggle away!)”

Babyberry Pie is a delightful picture book that’s just perfect as that special way to help say goodnight. A playful rhyme to share one-on-one with your little one or to read aloud to a group, it’s lullaby rhythm makes it a winner either way.  As we ready baby for bed…we go through the normal motions of bath time and tucking in…however we are also making baby into a pie. This tale pairs a sweet rhyme with perfectly matched illustrations from Amy Schwartz to create a great bedtime read. While my little man does not sit still for much, he did sit still through all of Babyberry Pie. He especially enjoyed the part where baby gets sugared from his head to his toes!

As a librarian I can’t help but think about what a great addition this book would be to any storytime collection. Perfect for a “bedtime” themed storytime or even lap sit. The easy rhythm and theme will make it a much used treasure.

Also remember to keep a watch out for Hide and Squeak coming in February of 2011 from Heather Vogel Frederick and C.F. Payne.

  1. My favorite picture book with my first son was/is Head to Toe by Eric Carle. Brady loved mimicking each animal. We had to read it EVERY day/night. I’ve just started reading it to my second boy and he loves it too. Definitely going into the memory box if it doesn’t fall apart first.

    Each of my seven children had their own favorite books, but I must say that Bedtime for Frances was probably my favorite. I was motivating, too. 🙂

  7. My favorite to read to my son is “I’ll love you forever” by Robert Munsch. Wonderful (and very true) pictures, and a great poem that is repeated through the book. Ill admit, I cried 🙂
