Baby Dance by Ann Taylor, Marjorie Van Heerden, Public Domain

Up and down, to and fro, coo and crow baby, there you go. Up to the ceiling, down to the ground, backward and forward, round and round ... All babies love to be lifted, twirled and held in loving arms. Now a rhythmic poem by nineteenth century poet Anne Taylor makes a delightful board book perfect for baby and parent to share. Marjorie van Heerden has captured the energy and joy of this playful text in vivd pastel illustrations full of the soft, gentle motion of dance.

For babies who are responding to music and movement, here's a playful poem that has father and child dancing lovingly across the pages.

BABY DANCE has great rythym; to amuse myself, I often sing it rather than read it. It introduces directional concepts (i.e. up, down, backward, forward, 'round and 'round), too. It's nice to see a father consoling and playing with his daughter to let her mother take a nap. It's realistic that they awaken her (and the cat) at the story's end.
