What toddler likes getting their diaper changed?

In this hilarious rhyming book, a little boy sees his world crumble around him as his mother prepares to change his diaper. But surrounded by a little love and feeling fresh and clean, he realizes that things may not be so terrible after all . . . unless he ever needs his diaper changed again!

Fun for babies, toddlers, and parents alike, this humorous book brings to life a scene familiar to all parents.

About the authors

Sarabeth Holden is an entrepreneur who loves to cook, do yoga, golf, and snowboard. She lives in Toronto with her husband Sean, their son Raymond, and their dog Oslo. The whole crew loves to spend time outside, especially at their local park. When she’s not outside, Sarabeth spends a lot of time singing made up songs to make things like diaper changes and face wiping a little more bearable and get back to the things she loves: blowing raspberries, reading stories, and having kitchen dance parties. Sarabeth grew up between Nunavut, New Brunswick, and Ontario, and is now the president of the Toronto Inuit Association, supporting the local Inuit community as it grows.

Editorial Reviews

"The cartoon-like illustrations from Vancouver’s Emma Pedersen drolly capture the cherubic child’s wide-eyed, histrionic view of his world...The melodramatic, rhyming text offers over-the-top comic relief while keenly bringing the stressors in an infant’s life into sharp, magnified focus" — Quill & Quire
