Both Bubba (the baby) and Beau (the puppy) love to go bye-bye, so when Big Bubba packs them both up in the red pickup truck to go into town, they gladly accompany him on his errands to the Feed and Seed store, the post office, and Sam’s fruit and vegetable stand. Finally they make one last stop at the Freezee Deluxe for raspberry-swirl ice cream cones (with extra napkins) before returning home to tuck in for the night. But neither Bubba nor Beau is ready for bed, and no amount of rocking or lullaby-singing will convince them otherwise. Only when Big Bubba packs them back into the pickup truck for another ride around town do they both drop off to sleep. Kathi Appelt’s folksy narrative style adds a great deal of humor to a story that’s illustrated with appealing cartoon-style watercolor paintings. (Ages 3–6)
