Description
Christopher and Caldecott Medal winner Jane Yolen and popular illustrator Jane Dyer—both grandmothers, and both lovers of infant rhymes—here present a treasury of read-aloud and play-along poems for prereaders. Some are Mother Goose favorites, but most are written by Yolen to celebrate meaningful moments in youngsters' lives—time for cuddles, for play, for games, and for a nap; dinnertime, bath time, and bedtime; and of course, time for love. Dyer provides pastel-colored, realistically detailed watercolors of children and grown-ups of all kinds, doing what all children do.

"From morning tickles and bounces to meals and playtime to bath and sleep, all of the rituals of the day are celebrated and cherished.... Many of the rhymes naturally suggest activity or interaction between readers and listeners, including bouncing, clapping, cuddling, and identifying body parts and everyday objects. ('Here we come from Dreamland, / There we go to town. / Baby riding on my knee, / Up, up, up—and down'). Art done in pencil and watercolor gently features wonderfully diverse babies and toddlers. The author and illustrator provide a helpful note 'from two grandmothers' about using rhymes with babies."—School Library Journal
