Picture Books – Shwatsit!

Baby sister has a unique word: “Shwatsit!” But what does it mean? Teddy bear? Brother? Balloon? When the family finally figures it out, they have to admit: the baby is “a clever little tot.”

The rhyming text bounces merrily from page to page. Each spread has only a few words on it, making for a fast-paced read that will appeal to toddlers. The illustrations are charming, and will likely appeal to both children and adults. I was a little disappointed, however to note that the bus full of students and park full of children were populated solely by white children. Aside from this oversight, however, the book is otherwise very visually engaging.
