Babyhood has never looked so playful as in this rollicking, rhyme-filled picture book by Stephanie Calmenson, with pictures by Melissa Sweet.
In 33 original rhymes, parents and babies can recognize everything that makes being a little tyke so much fun. Verses like "Little Blue Whale," with rolling lines like "Little blue whale/In a big blue sea,/Splish, splash,/Swim with me" are clever odes to everyday activities like taking baths, while "Babies in a Stroller" and "Riding Shoulders" ("Riding shoulders way up high./Waving to the passersby./Grabbing glasses, grabbing hair./Looking, looking, everywhere!") give cheery perspective on enjoying the outdoors with Mom and Dad. Other toddler-loving themes include first milestones like walking and talking, learning counting and the alphabet, and pretending.
A perfect blend of lighthearted rhymes and refreshing illustrations, this read-aloud charmer will tickle your fancy. Not only will this hit a sweet spot for new parents wanting to read to their children, but kids will love practicing the rhymes as they develop their language and reading skills. A baby celebration that will lift your spirits! Matt Warner
