This book is about a dad telling a newborn baby that on the day you were born he basically introduced the baby to the new world, and mentioned a lot of things he did when the baby was born. I would describe this book as a very kiddish and very amusing as it taught me a new word. The illustrations in the book are absolutely fantastic and it looks very neat. I absolutely love this book and for this reason, I think more people should read this book and borrow it. This book is recommended for ages 4 to 8 because I think it would best fit that age group. @Bookworm5755 of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board
