Wee Rhymes: Baby's First Poetry Book

112 pages
ISBN: 978𢴒169-48988

Ages birth-3

揢pside daisy, / Oh so crazy, / Look out梐ll fall down. / Pick you up / And dust you off, / And kiss away that frown (揂ll Fall Down). A collection of original nursery rhymes interspersed with occasional Mother Goose classics emphasizes playful language, sounds, rhythm, and the joy of rhyme-making moments in daily life. Babies and toddlers will delight in the merry tone and silly sounds of Jane Yolen抯 verse, which is rooted in familiar routines and objects of early childhood: diaper-changing, eating, dressing, toys, and of course the presence of loving adults. Jane Dyer抯 illustrations show an array of diverse, sweetly rounded faces and adult caregivers in a book sure to inspire some original sound- and wordplay.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
