More More More Said the Baby by Vera B. Williams. In this Caldecott winner, a trio of toddlers get loved to pieces by the adults in their lives. A friend gave us this delightful picture book when Rose was born, and we literally read it to pieces. Even with the cover half gone and the pages in tatters, it’s a book that calls to us from the shelf…we can’t resist the fun of seeing these little ones get tickled, twirled, and smothered with kisses. “More, more, more!” shout the babies, and “Again!” cries Beanie. Be prepared to pounce on your own little one after you close the book: some merry wrestling or tossing in the air will be expected.
