Penfold, Alexandra. Eat, Sleep, Poop, illustrated by Jane Massey. PICTURE BOOK. Alfred A. Knopf, 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
The perfect book to prepare siblings for a new baby from the baby’s perspective. What does a baby do? The title says it all: Eat, Sleep, Poop. And somedays, baby sleeps less and cries more. Baby picks things up: wipes, food, dog food, keys, and even a doggy tail. Then the baby: eats, sleeps, and poops.
The pencil and gouache illustrations are bright and cheerful. The word repetition of the title is sure to appeal to young siblings and prepare them for what it is like to have a new baby.
