You Are My Little Pumpkin Pie

Amy E. Sklansky, illus. by Talitha Shipman. Little, Brown/LB Kids, $6.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-316-20714-0

This follow-up to You Are My Little Cupcake gives parents another foodie analogy to express their love for their kids. “Your scent is just delightful—/ Like cinnamon and spice./ Each time I kiss your yummy cheek,/ I have to kiss it twice,” writes Sklansky as Shipman provides smudgy scenes of baby/parent duos baking a pumpkin pie and sharing a tender moment on a city street. A cozy and comforting read with bedtime book potential. Up to age 3. Author’s agent: April Prince, Studio Goodwin Sturges. Illustrator’s agent: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Aug.)
