Mom and baby are home alone when — DING DONG! — Auntie and then Uncle and Nannie and Gran-Gran and the cousins come to visit. And they all want to hug and kiss and squeeze and eat the baby right up — because everybody loves the baby SO MUCH! With Helen Oxenbury lending her characteristic warmth and humor to a most exuberant family party, Trish Cooke's rhythmic, cumulative story captures the joy of being the baby in a large extended family — a baby who knows that he is absolutely, utterly adored.
Auntie and Uncle and Nannie and Gran-Gran and all the cousins want to hug and kiss the new baby — they all love the baby SO MUCH! Illustrations by Helen Oxenbury brim with the warmth of a large, loving extended family.
