Please, Baby, Please by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee is a simple picture storybook depicting everyday scenes from life with a baby in the house. From the moment the baby wakes up in the middle of the night to throwing cereal to drawing on the walls and making a mess in the bathroom, this book follows Baby all day. Yet, despite all of the frustration, at the end of the book, Baby gets tucked in with a loving goodnight kiss. The storyline is very simple and appropriate for toddlers, who may see themselves in the charming illustrations. While the text is extremely minimal, the pictures are so focused and detailed on this baby’s daily progress that it adds much to what the text may not explicitly say.

This book takes you through a day with a mother and her toddler. It starts out with the mother begging the baby to go back to sleep at 3:30 in the morning and just goes through out the day. All the while the baby causing lots of troubleI liked the book it was cute and a book that I might would read to little bitty babies.I would probably not put this book in the classroom.

Picture this: Mom and Dad are in bed and their baby girl crawls in and wants up. "Go back to bead, baby, PLEASE baby, PLEASE!" Every parent has had it happen: The 300 in the morning “can’t go to sleep playtime, a bowl of cereal dumped all of the head, crayon drawings all over the wall, the screaming friend who won't give back the ball, eating sand at the playground, and giving you a dandelion. Every scene mimics every parent's experience in parenthood. This could turn into a series illustrating all of the frustrating elements families lives as that toddler goes to preschool, then to elementary school, middle school, and finally high school. Nelson uses such delightful expressions on the children's faces that you know you could never stay mad at them for long. The pages are filled to the edge with realistic pictures in bright, brilliant colors. Children will love turning page after page because they will certainly identify with nearly every scene depicted. As a teacher I appreciate being able to promote a book including a black family doing every day normal routines in a familiar setting. It’s about normal families. I’m glad race didn’t matter. Highly recommended. Ages 2-5.

Wonderful rhythm, repetition and rhyme in this book about a toddler's day. Babies, toddlers and preschoolers will be able to relate to and have fun with this book, as will parents. Gorgeous illustrations.
