Reviews from Around the World "This is a great book of poems to read to babies and toddlers. All the poems are pertinent to a small child----they're about things they do or see, etc all day long. The poems are fun for adults to read, too. This book would make a great gift for new parents and because they are poems, it might take the pressure off an adult who may be intimidated with reading a whole book to a baby. But with a poetry book, you can just read one or two and call it good!"—Amazon Customer, Amazon
"This book is written for babies and toddlers. The text throughout this book is simple and clearly written. The poems have a rhyme scheme of AA BB. The rhyming words are simple with a bouncy playful sound. Each page has a brightly colored border which would attract a young child’s eyes. All of the activities are visual representations of common everyday baby activities. The illustrator does a good job paying very close attention to the tiny details. For example, all of the details are visually appealing to a baby."—Nicholas Linsk, Goodreads
