HOW MANY FEET IN THE BED? >br> BY DIANE JOHNSTON HAMM AND KATE SALLEY PALMER, $14.00
Add to Cart
Here is the only family bed counting book that I have found. The reader counts the feet as a family jumps in and out of bed on a Sunday morning. This delightful story teaches counting as sleepy, somewhat grungy, parents and their three little kids cuddle and snuggle. [hardcover]

A family bed story in the tradition of The House That Jack Built, this book with colorful, surreal illustrations shows "snoring granny,""dreaming child," "dozing dog," and lots of other creatures sharing " a cozy bed" where everyone is sleeping until a flea starts a series of startled awakenings causing the ultimate collapse of the bed. Great fun for ages three to six. [hardcover]

A TEENY TINY BABY
BY AMY SCHWARTZ, $15.95
Add to Cart
A baby describes the many activities he enjoys, both at home and out in the busy city. This first person view (actually "first baby" view since the baby is the narrator) of the world (and Brooklyn Heights in particular) is hysterically funny. Among the things this tiny baby enjoys is a ride on daddy in his sling and a late night tour of his apartment. Each illustration of his parents subtly shows that perpetual state of new parent exhaustion to which all parents can relate. The nursing drawings go on for three pages as the baby says "I like to eat when the sun hasn't quite risen yet and then again when I decide to really get up and then a little later and then in the afternoon. . ." - well you get the idea. There is one shot of daddy feeding baby a bottle but I choose to assume that it is pumped breastmilk. Finally the baby describes all the places he likes to sleep - and there are many-but he does not like his cradle and he does like to sleep between mom and dad. The family bed illustration is a classic - baby bed-hogging while each parent is curled up on either edge. This is a fun children's book with humor to be found on every page for the adult who has been there. [hardcover]

WE HAVE A BABY
BY CATHRYN FALWELL, $15.00
Add to Cart
The arrival of a new baby is cause for celebration, presenting opportunities to love, watch, touch, and care for the new family member. This colorfully illustrated book has simple one sentence text describing each loving act in which an older sibling can participate. Feeding shows the baby being nursed while mom has her arm around the older sibling who is drinking from a sippy cup. The closing illustration has both children sleeping together. A good introduction for a young new sibling or an early reader. [hardcover]
