A delightful meal with a big extended family becomes a free-for-all when one particularly excitable baby joins the fun. This rollicking, rhyming picture book about one (rather large) diverse family dinner captures the buzz and hum of a shared meal, with one adorable baby at its center.

“Adults will recognize the scenario while children delight in the baby’s (mis)behavior.”—Booklist, Starred Review★ 

“Utterly adorable and inarguably entrancing, this is a rhythmic little wonder just begging to be said aloud.”—Besty Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal

“A sweet reminder to siblings big and small that they are all important members of the family.” – Kirkus

“[A] celebration of cooking and eating in a family in which the very youngest are cherished.” – Publishers Weekly
