King Baby

Arthur A Levine Books, 2016
Kate Beaton’s sister recently had a baby, her mother’s first grandchild. This book is dedicated to him and is a charming take on the love and attention he gets.

King Baby generously accepts tribute and demands to be fed, changed, and brought his toys. This is his due, after all. His might only grows as he learns to crawl and walk. But when he is a Big Boy, who will lead his loyal subjects?

I especially liked one of King Baby’s shirts: is it a tribute to the Read To Me onesies we’ve all given as gifts? [edited to add: hey look! The King Baby onesies are now available for sale!]
