A mother who wants to paint, a baby that persists in crying, and a boy set to play baseball who's detained to "Go and hush the baby, Will./ It won't take long./ Go and hush the baby,/ Sing him a little song." Artfully synchronized for the reader who can take in at once the mother's pleading rhymes, Will's words to the baby, and the pictures-only interplay between baby and boy.
