This book is really fun to read aloud, particularly the part where baby says, "Uh, oh!" and Momma says, "Oh, no!"
What a great short and simple toddler story. The rythm and rhyme are perfect for this sort of story. Illustrations are perfect.
I have two sons, ages 3 1/2 and 1. They both climb into my lap with this book in hand to be read to them again and again! My three-year-old especially loves to say the repeated lines with me "Baby says Uh Oh! Mommy says Oh No! But those shoes just GO GO GO!" with enthusiam (and volume)! It has great rhythm and rhyme, adorable illustrations, and a really fun little storyline that truly illustrates life with a strong-willed and energetic little one! We love it!
