Book Review and Giveaway: Babyberry Pie. Ends Dec 19th

Babyberry Pie written by Heather Vogel Frederick and illustrated by Amy Schwartz.

How do you bake a babyberry pie? Pick one wiggly baby from the babyberry tree. Pop him in the tub and scrub clean. Add sugar to his nose and toes. Tuck him into a warm pie crust. And don’t forget a kiss goodnight!

That’s the perfect recipe for a babyberry pie—and a playful, peaceful bedtime. (Just don’t let that little giggleberry wiggle away!)

My Review: This modern day lullaby plays on words of a “sweet little Berrybaby Pie”.  This story has the potential to be the next classic lullaby such as “Rock-a-by Baby” or “The Itsy bitsy Spider”.  Give your imagination a chance and don’t think too much into the story or the plot.  Just recite the cute little verses in rhyme to soothe your little one off to sleep every night.  The artwork is charmingly done and endears the story as it goes along.  The Berrybaby proves to be rambunctious as are most toddlers that need to be put down for the night.  This just adds a sense of both reality and adventure for the little one you’re reading too.  This little jewel with its endearing artwork has the potential to be a classic that will be part of your child’s favorite memories.

A perfect bedtime story and I highly recommend this book.

Ages: 3 and up

Pages: 40

  13. This sounds like a wonderful bedtime book. While it may talk about ‘babies’ my 4 1/2 year old would really love this. She talks all the time about when she was a baby, her brother was a baby, and now her new baby sister!
