I've been desperately searching for children's books that actually depict the lifestyle my kids are used too and this book fits almost perfectly. My baby always looks very confused when she sees books where the baby is in a cot/pushchair/carseat/bouncer (delete where applicable) because she is carried everywhere on my back in a sling! It's really nice to show her a book she can relate too. The only downside of this story is it shows a baby holding a bottle (but I guess this could be expressed breast milk!). The story is short and intriguing and has a lovely surprise ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars good story, bad illustrations!! 8 Feb 2001
By sunshinemama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Very cute story. I love that backpack baby and the new baby in the front carrier are on their DADDY! It is also wonderful to see that the babies are being carried, a nice switch from all the "stroller" type books out there. I have to agree that the placement of a baby bottle in one of the illustrations is upsetting. I understand that the children are with their father, but there is no need for a bottle in such a seemingly nurturing story. The illustrations in general are just terrible. All in all I would recommend the story to all families out there that carry their infants and want to reinforce that this is natural for many families. But I wish the pictures were as beautiful as the idea for the book was.

I bought this book for a grandnephew whose mother is from Mexico and whose father is Anglo. It was great having a book both parents could read to their son. It was a big hit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Especially appreciated by baby-carrying parents and children 30 Dec 2000
By ChristineMM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Sturdy board book with a simple story. Backpack baby is riding in a backpack on his father's back. He has a secret and whispers it to various people they pass on the street. We know not what the secret is until the end: Backpack baby has a new baby who is in a carrier on the front of Daddy! What a cute story.
Any parent who uses a baby carrier of any kind will appreciate this story as scenes depicting baby carrying are rarely seen in children's literature.
The only negative is the inclusion of backpack baby holdinga baby bottle. A disappointment to me as a breastfeeding mother. I don't like images of baby bottles in children's literature as I feel it portrays bottle-feeding as the normal infant feeding method. If he is old enough to speak sentences to passers-by I'd think he should be drinking from a cup instead anyway! (I used a little sticker to cover up the bottle and will keep this book in our family libary. I usually throw away books with images of baby bottles in them.)

I am a huge fan of the backpack baby series and can't wait for more to come. This book is colorful and has a nice story. Little kids can get their hands on it and it lasts! We enjoy it as a family immensely!
