What will get Baby Louise to stop crying? Her mother tries a lullaby. Her father tries rocking her gently. Her grandmother tries a nice warm bottle. Her grandfather tries a happy tune. All the neighbours have advice. But Louise keeps crying so long and loud that she shakes the pictures off the walls, wakes the cats and dogs, and scares the squirrels away. Finally, Louise's big brother Daniel comes home from school. And he knows how to make his sister stop crying!
