Maggie Smith's rhythmic, occasionally rhyming text brings us through a busy day with baby. We count up from one to ten as baby gets out of the bath, gets dressed, has a meal, and heads outside with mom to play. Then we count down again from ten to one as baby notices flowers and birds, splashes in puddles, plays with puppies, and gets dirty enough . . . to need another bat ...more

This is a cute counting book that follows a baby throughout his daily activities from bathtime to bathtime. Readers count from one to ten and then backward from ten back to one. The illustrations are cute, but busy. I kept getting distracted by all the items in the background, especially inside the house. Toys, pets, clothing, shoes, mail, books, etc. were everywhere! Author and illustrator Maggie Smith really made an effort to make this home looked lived in.

"One naked baby, two fat cats, three laundry baskets..." This story counts up to ten with things baby sees around the house and then counts back down again with things that are outside until baby lands up back in the bath.

The illustrations were made in watercolor. They are colorful and vibrant and give a sense of fun. However, the pictures are quite busy for the toddler age reader making it difficult to find and count the items that the words portray.

I just shared Maggie Smith's One Naked Baby with my babies and ones classes and while at times I felt like I was reading the story to myself (as sometimes happens, especially with wiggly babies and rambunctious ones), it was a cute counting book perfect for the age range. However, I did only read half the book (we counted up to 10) and stopped before we counted down again.
My five-year-old son checked this book out from the library last week. Then he tried to check out another copy today.

This book is a little young for a five-year-old, but he still had fun identifying the numbers, counting the objects and reading the words for the numbers.

The illustrations are nakedly adorable.

Follows the adventures of one baby who has a fun, and muddy day, counting from 1-10.
Summary (CIP): Illustrations and simple rhymes go from one to ten and back again over the course of a baby's day.

Review: Naked babies are hilarious. They just love being naked so much. Well this naked baby is cute, hilarious, and even educational. This book counts up to ten and back again in a series of adventures with naked baby bookends. Someo f the items for counting are quite small and may be hard for the intended audience to identify.

Positive review in SLJ,a "charming counting book". Horn
A cute choice for a younger tots storytime with a counting theme - especially nice as it's counting up to ten and then back again through a baby's day - just the right pacing for a storytime read with room for queries "How many ducks on his hat?" and so on. It's not always easy to find good books for this age that read well in a group setting, this one fits the bill.
Great for the young ones

Babies and kids learn to count to ten and back down again.
Cute photos, cute story. Perfect for toddlers.
