A contemporary fable about a magical remedy for a baby who won't stop crying. Miriam is a baker whose bread is full of smells to make your nose twitch and tastes to make your tongue tingle. Miriam's own favorite cinnamon bread so delights Sebastian, a musician who enters her shop, that he buys it every day for a year and then asks her to marry him. After a baby is born to the happy couple, all is blissful until their bundle of joy begins crying. And crying. Only when the two are almost at wit's end does Miriam suddenly know, looking down at her baby curled up like a little raisin, exactly what she must do. A celebration of the bond between mother and child and an ode to the power of our senses, each delectable word and image of this beautifully told and illustrated story will be savored.

When a baker named Miriam has her first child, she's at a loss as to how to get her newborn to stop crying. Her and her husband try everything. Eventually, they find the cure, and it seemed the answer was right in front of them the entire time.

Cinnamon Baby is an adorable picture book. I loved the quirky and whimsical illustrations, and it made my mouth water from the descriptions of all the different kinds of breads Miriam bakes in her bakery.

This book would be great for toddlers who may have a new little brother or sister at home. The search for a way to soothe the baby would be a relatable one, for kids and adults.

I adored Cinnamon Baby. It's a gem of a picture book, and I can't wait to see more from Winstanley and Nadeau.
