This is such a funny and sweet book about an older sibling being confused about her younger siblings "job". I would love to use this book to teach kids how to "infer" the answer being asked by the book. ( )

Snarky and keeping in line with Z's mindset toward babies and toddlers, both of which ironically seem drawn to him. ( )

A very funny picturebook! A school-aged girl tells us all about babies and their lazy, loafing nature. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810970279, Hardcover)

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Orchid Thief comes a smart, hilarious take on what babies contribute—or don’t—to the world.

 

Ever experienced stroller envy? Ever wished you were applauded just for walking across a room? Ever wanted to loaf about the park on a blanket in the middle of a school day with nothing on your agenda but being relaxed and happy? Then you should be a baby. They’ve got it made.

 

In this charming, droll story, a world-weary older sister ponders the question, why don’t more babies work? Her answers, hilariously tinged with resentment, offer up a wickedly accurate picture of just how great babies have it.

 

Known for her keen and witty observations of various subcultures, Susan Orlean here turns her gaze on babies. The resulting picture book is tongue-in-cheek fun for older siblings and anyone looking for a lazy, praise-filled day.

While walking to school, lugging a heavy backpack through New York City one morning, a disgruntled child questions why babies are so lazy, spending their days on useless activities such as napping and babbling rather than getting jobs.
