There's lots of colorful paper and ribbons to tear, rustle, and crumple as this toddler and kitten unwrap a gift. And as every baby knows—the packaging is even more fun than what's inside!

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."

Do you remember that mastercard commercial with the little girl playing IN the box and not with the toy that was inside? This is a delightful adaptation of the same premise - complete with colorful pictures and rhymes. I even laughed out loud the first time I read it to my daughter and still smile when the baby 'flings the teddies on the floor' and plays with the tissue paper. This truly is a must-have book for any child and is one of the first my daughter will grab off the shelf.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
