“Bah!” said the Baby. But what does Baby want? Book? Ball? Bow? Brother? Bunny? Bear? Block? Bottle? Mom, Brother, and Sister all consider what Baby might be saying, offering one object after another. From the puzzled, priceless expressions on Baby’s face, it’s clear that no one understands. Baby’s meaning is finally made clear the fourth time a family member leaves the room. “Bah-Bah.” “The Baby said 'Bye-Bye!’” Jennifer Plecas combines a brief, clever, patterned text with superb and terrifically appealing supporting illustrations that offer clues to what Baby is saying from the opening page of the story. (Ages 1–4)
