As a big boy, Toby the elephant can do many things all by himself. However, he could use Mama's help with tricky tasks, such as buttoning his coat, but she is busy taking care of his baby sister, Iris. When Mama leaves him abruptly to respond to Iris' cries, Toby gets so mad that he packs his suitcase and escapes to the backyard. When Mama finds him, Toby says he would rather be a baby than a big boy. Mama comforts Toby by pointing out that Iris can't do lots of things, and that Toby will always be her baby—even when he's grown up. This gentle story features charming illustrations done with watercolor, colored pencils, and potato stamps, which add texture and dimension. Humor is conveyed by depictions of Toby cheerfully doing "big boy" tasks maladroitly (e.g., reading bedtime stories while holding a book upside down). Though Mama may sound neglectful, her amused gaze is upon Toby even as she attends to baby. This book shares a comforting message for young children with baby siblings. Preschool-Grade 1.
