Beaumont CrybabyIn this story, Roy the dog knows best but no one will listen to Roy. The baby wakes up and cries and keeps crying. Everyone tries to quiet baby and Roy keeps trying to give baby the toy but everyone says, “No Roy, she doesn’t want that toy.” Of course in the end Roy gives baby the toy and she is quiet. This may be a fun story for small children who are about to have a baby brother or sister.
