As she does in Pots and Pans (see entry in Picture Books for Younger Children), Patricia Hubbell once again offers a pleasing rhymed text based on true-to-life baby behavior. Here a baby and a feline companion have more fun with the wrapping paper and box a present comes in than they do with the three teddy bears enclosed as the gift. Each step of the unwrapping process inspires a baby game-- waving the paper, wearing the paper as a hat, playing peek-a-boo, and, of course, tearing the paper, playful illustrated in a style reminiscent of Helen Oxenbury. (Ages 1-2)
