Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Smitten adults gush over the attributes of their little ones by comparing them to the goodness of sweet pumpkin pie. The simple rhyming text is jovial, celebratory and just a little silly. Take this, for example: "Your scent is just delightful-- / Like cinnamon and spice. // Each time I kiss your yummy cheek, / I have to kiss it twice." Spoonfuls of praise pile up, like giant dollops of whipped cream, culminating with the final pages: "You are so delicious-- / The star of any feast. // You're my little pumpkin pie, / Each and every piece." The interactions between adult and baby that the text invites will make sharing this an enjoyable experience and help keep baby's attention. In a nice touch, the illustrations depict different families on each page spread, and the multiethnic cast of characters includes both women and men cuddling with their little ones. The warm tones, pumpkin-pie theme, and orange and gold-leafed trees featured in the illustrations make this a natural choice for fall reading. A shiny corrugated pie plate and glittery whipped cream add a little zip to the cover, inviting readers to dig in. Share this sweet treat with baby for some serious bonding time.
