A fresh, offbeat story celebrating what comes “from the mouths of babes”!

“Our baby has a favorite word—the silliest word you’ve ever heard . . .”

As Baby points at everything in sight, she has just one thing to say: “Shwatsit!” But what on earth does it mean? Finally, her older brother solves the mystery while watching her try to reach for her teddy bear. “She wants it. She wants it. Say it fast: Shwatsit!”

A-ha! At last! “Shwatsit” is “she wants it”—fast!

Baby’s word sure means a lot. She’s such a clever little tot!

Parents, older siblings, and little ones will enjoy, and recognize themselves in, this sweet family story.
