Just picked this book up at the library. For fairly young kids (picture book).

"Baby Knows Best"
by Kathy Henderson
Illustrated by Brita Granstrom

Anyway, definately advocates simple living :LOL


"We gave the baby rattles
and we gave her things with bells
she's got toys that roll and click and tick;
there's one that sings as well.
She's got a sorting box that whistles
and a squeaky mouse to squeeze...
And what does she want to play with?

The front door keys"
It goes on (baby picking a newspaper (over all sorts of books), the bath tub plug (over lots of toys), nakedness (over tons of clothes), eating w/the family (specific baby foods), and the last:

"She has a stroller and a backpack
anda a carraige up on wheels;
then there's her car seat with the handle
and the string of colored bells,
and her high chair and the bouncer
and the crib. There's all this stuff...
And where does she want to be?

Snuggled up with us"
Kinda cute (probably wouldn't buy it, but if your library has it it's worth a look. While there is a crib the baby wants out (and the family is shown cuddled at the end) and I didn't see any bottles.
