We are delighted to be reissuing this lovely book, with new cover artwork from Ian Beck. It's a collection of rhymes to enjoy, when baby is on your knee or cradled in your arms; jolly rhymes for playful babies and gentle rhymes for sleepy babies. Many traditional favourites are here, including 'This is the Way the Ladies Ride', 'Rub-a-Dub-Dub', and 'Rock-a-Bye-Baby' - and they are all cheerily illustrated by Ian Beck. The rhymes are gathered into four sections: knee-jogging rhymes; bouncing and dancing rhymes; patting and clapping rhymes; and lullabies and rocking rhymes - and there are introductory notes for parents at the beginning of each section. The accompanying CD, neatly packaged within the back cover flap, includes a musical arrangement for every rhyme, either based on the familiar tune or specially composed. This is the perfect package to introduce babies to music, movement and rhythm - great for playtime and bedtime.
