They say that music has the power to soothe the savage beast, but what about a baby? This collection of rhymes and songs offers pieces ranging from the traditional “Trot Trot to Boston” to Woody Guthrie’s “Jig Along Home.” Theo Heras, well-known children’s librarian and talented performer, shares ten favorite songs and rhymes and suggests how they can be used by parents and caregivers with babies and toddlers.
Vibrant illustrations by Jennifer Herbert narrate a day in the life of a baby and his quirky family. Young ones will enjoy spending time with them as they sing, clap, and bounce the day away.
