The one-year-old's perennial fascination with kitchen cupboards is joyfully acknowledged in a bouncy rhyming text. Under the feet of a busy parent in the kitchen, the baby opens cupboards and finds all sorts of makeshift toys--pots, pans, soup cans, and other kitchen implements. The dog and cat join the fun, which continues until the baby gets into the cupboard with boxes of cereal and cookies, at which time Dad puts an end to the baby's explorations. An everyday occurrence in any life with a baby is enhanced by Diane de Groat's realistic watercolor paintings drawn from a baby's perspective. (Ages 1-3)
