“Ma! there’s nothing to do here!” complains the precocious protagonist of this rhyming tale set entirely in utero. It’s not exactly a scintillating experience spending nine months in your mother’s womb. You’re just stuck there at the end of that dumb bungee cord (a.k.a. the umbilical cord), with nothing whatsoever to do but slosh around. But, oh, the endless joys you have to look forward to as you listen to the tick-tock of ma’s happy heart clock and await that happy day when you finally come out to play.

Your Baby has ATTITUDE

I am expecting my third baby very soon, and so this book has been a fun and humorous addition to our collection, and a sort of preparation for my girls. It is definitely that time (37 weeks) where the little one in my womb seems to be vying for my attention and expressing him/herself, and the more kicks and twists and turns I feel, the more I can picture my baby saying just what the one in this board book has to say about being stuck inside the womb. Written in poetry, this little one's complaints and whines are endearing to both me and my children, and the drawings of a baby swinging on monkey bars, driving a truck with some animals, and plummeting down a slide into his mom's arms (to represent the delivery? Hilarious!) just add to the fun. This definitely makes us all look forward to our new baby's arrival even more!
