My son (toddler) absolutely loved this book when we checked it out from the library. After we returned it, he asked for "Baby" for months before I finally broke down and bought it. 4 yo loved it too. Beautiful little illustrations, sweet story. He still loves it at 27 months. I'll save it forever since it was his first favorite book.
Absolutely adore this book. My 2.5 year old son and I sing it often before nap and bed. It is so cute and a refreshing twist to the traditional version. He even sings it along with me. Highly suggest this book!

This adorable book is perfect for reading (or singing!) a little one to sleep. It is written to the rhythm of "Rock-a-bye Baby" and has 9 verses that tell the tale of an adventurous baby who falls from his cradle and meets a crow, rides a pig, crawls into a barn, and floats down a river and over a waterfall. Of course by the end, the story concludes with the baby back home and the verse, "Sweet little Baby, rocking with me- Who'd put a cradle high in a tree? Babies in trees are fine in a song... But you, little one, are where you belong." I just love that- a perfect, calm ending to an adventurous tale.
The illustrations are dreamlike- a perfect companion to the dreamy story.
What happens when the wind blows baby right out of the tree? You get this rollicking, rhyming adventure, with baby ending up right where he belongs at the end. Great journey from wild and silly to calm and lovely. Perfect for bedtime!
