Patricia Hubbell has been writing poetry since she was eleven years old. In 1998, her Wrapping Paper Romp was selected as a Parents Magazine Book of the Year. Patricia Hubbell lives with her husband, Harold Hornstein, in Easton, Connecticut, the small town where she was born. Remembering how much their children and grandchildren loved to bounce when they were very young prompted her to write Bouncing Time. "Bouncing is one of the joyous things little kids do," she says. "It reflects their constant enthusiasm."

Move over wild things and Chicka-Chicka Boom! Boom!, this book rules in our house! My husband bought this book for our now 6-year-old when he was one and it's been a family favorite ever since. Our 4-year-old 'reads' it to her baby sister and our son sings along. The rhythm and rhyme are sheer perfection. Get this book- you and your baby will fall in love with it!
This book is wonderful !!!!!! It is a very expressive book and lots fun for children and adults to read.
