Got this book from the library and we liked it enough to buy our own used copy. Good story about letting go of baby things to move on to the next stages. It has a happy ending and a cute little song.
I bought this book 10 years ago and it is one of the favorites of my grandchildren. I bought two copies, one for a new grandchild and one for me. I know the author and her son Henry, so it is extra special to me. The storyline is so wonderful and a child learns about giving.
I read a lot of childrens books and I found this one especially joyful. The story charmingly captures the close bond and happy life a mother and baby create together, from his birth to pre-school. It also shows how difficult it is for both of them to part with a cherished part of that life (in this case his baby carriage), even when it is time. The satisfying resolution features a new owner of blue buggy. She is someone who needs it and will appreciate it. Looking back over the book, we realize she's been there all along. What makes this book for me is the illustrations. They are relaxed, stylish, vibrant and original and capture the people and scenes beautifully.
This is a wonderful story for children and grownups! It touches on so many issues and values and warms the heart! It will become a classic to be read again and again.
