Item description for Baby Mix Me a Drink (Baby Be of Use) by Lisa Brown & Lisa Brown...
Many people are parents, and many parents are thirsty. Yet too many parents allow their infant sons and daughters to lie about idly: napping, drinking milk, and whatnot. Why not put them to work? Observe how tots enjoy the shapes and colors, all the while learning how to mix a variety of basic cocktails. Thanks, Baby!

Reviews - What do customers think about Baby Mix Me a Drink (Baby Be of Use)?
Not her best work Sep 4, 2008
I *love*" Lisa Brown's other works so I bought this book sight unseen. It's not her best work. My recommendations (ranking #s) are: "Baby make me breakfast" (#1), "Baby fix my car" (#2) and "Baby do my banking" (#3). "Baby mix me a drink" is a distant fourth. Then again, it's still fun!
Funny concept, boring execution May 15, 2008
I bought this book because of the hilarious title and concept. What I found inside were illustrations not of anything baby-related, but simply bottles of booze. The 5 spreads follow the same format of, for example, a drawing of champagne + bitters + sugar cubes = a champagne cocktail. I guess I was expecting to see babies making drinks in there somewhere, since, you know, the book is titled "Baby, Mix Me a Drink" and everything. The biggest laugh you'll get from this book is the title.
a big disappointment, a baby could have done better Nov 26, 2007
What a disappointment. A great idea seems to have been ruined by the attempt to be too hip for words. I was hoping for the creativity and wit of LET'S NOSH or the SUSHI board book. At least those rhyme ("Miso in my Sippy cup"). Instead we are left with an unrhyming, mean spirited, too hip for words board book. I expected more from this publisher. Still... it is a great concept, and a good gag gift, but worthless as a bedtime book.

I recently gave this book to an expectant mother at her baby shower and it was the hit of the party! Highly recommended.
Hilarious Jan 18, 2007
This book is fun, fun, fun! You have to have a sense of humor to enjoy it. When my kids know the difference, it will be put up onto the adults only book shelf but my one year old enjoys the pictures and I enjoy the thought of a yummy cocktail.
