Wiggle, tickle, sneeze . . . and giggle! From learning to crawl to clapping their hands, babies are always doing something new. Kathy Henderson's lively poems, filled with action and sound words, are guaranteed to grab young children's attention. And Paul Howard's adorable, large-scale illustrations aptly capture babies' and toddlers' delight at exploring their own abilities and the world around them. Wow, what a body can do!
In this loving celebration of all things baby, Henderson lyrically commemorates a small child's amazing feats, from crawling to clapping to exploring food with their entire bodies. "Stand./wobble./Sway/wobble. Bump!/Step/walk/toddle!" The oversize pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are warm and soft, with perfectly captured body movements and facial expressions. These babies are wide-eyed, innocent, and irresistible, and their feelings are right on target. "I want yours! No! It's mine!" is prompted by a tug-of-war over a bottle. "I feel lonely" shows a solitary child in a swing, while "I feel fine" shows a little girl hugging her stuffed bear. A lovely book for group or individual sharing.
