Mama was tired so grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, big sister, and little brother were left to watch baby while mama went to sleep. The baby started to cry and then each of the family members tried to figure out what baby wanted and brought back what they thought baby would want but they were wrong. But it was little bother who was the one who figure out what baby wanted, he just wanted to be cuddled and sang a lullaby. Then baby was sleeping. Books show that the littlest of things can have a big impact. I would definitely use this book in my classroom with my students. When I introduce this book to my students, I would ask my students their input of what they think baby wants and what they think will happen with what each character had brought back to see if baby wanted it. This book would have the students really engaged in the book and the text. ( )
