Sonny has a new baby in his family who cries and eats a lot. He asks his mother why babies eat so much and she tells him that it's because babies are growing so fast. Sonny doesn't see her growing but his mother tells him that she grows at night when no one is looking. That night Sonny goes to baby's room and finds that she has grown to be the size of her crib, the next night the size of her room. When Sonny tells his mother about how fast baby is growing she simply agrees and Sonny has to keep watch of baby until she reaches for the moon.
This is a cute book that fits neatly into the fiction/fantasy section as Sonny's dreams of baby getting larger becomes the reality of the reader. Almost as if the reader and Sonny are the only ones who understand what is happening.
I would read this to Early elementary students through middle school student age.

One night Sonny couldn't sleep, so he crept out of bed and tiptoed down the hall to his baby sister's room. He saw that Baby was huge, but in the morning was back to normal size. That night she grew bigger than Sonny. The next night she filled the entire room! Sonny's nightly watch will astonish and delight young readers. Watercolor and colored pencil illustrations.
