Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Nine stanzas of appealing verse show a baby playing with family members and pets, taking a bath, and going to bed. “Bitsy bouncy baby / On a bumpity lap / Mommy’s little baby likes to / CLAP / CLAP / CLAP!” Although the text is a bit longer than that of most board books, its bouncy verses will hold young children’s attention with rhythm, rhyme, repeated phrases, and references to familiar things. Meanwhile, the digital artwork illustrates the cheerful characters in squiggly, black line drawings brightened with bold patterns and colors. Encouraging interaction between parent and child, this board book reflects babies’ everyday activities with verve and joy. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Board book
Baby Baby Baby! is simply one of the most adorable, sweet and tantalizing board books for little ones that I have seen in a while. The illustrations are bold, bright and colorful - perfect to keep little one's attention! The text is delightfully fun, rhyming and has a repetitive nature that is perfect for an infant/baby range. The board pages are strong and sturdy, so no fears as your little one explores the book on his or own own, about pages ripping or becoming creased and crinkled.

I had so much fun reading this story. I read it to my son - who is four and a bit out of the age range, however it is fun to have your older child do the actions to the story as you read. For example, when baby likes to clap, clap, clap or dance, dance, dance, how fun to have your child interact and bring the story to life as you read. Also great for introducing simple reading and repeating to those emerging readers.

Baby Baby Baby! is guaranteed to be a wonderful hit for snuggle time and will have both you and your baby giggling and smiling! Perfect for a gift for someone you love and/or a stocking stuffer for your little one!

Between the repetition and the rhyming kids of all ages will find something to like about this board book. Author Marilyn Janovitz accurately describes the actions of a little baby just learning to explore her world, whether its playing clapping games on mama's lap or dancing in daddy's arms. She also interacts with the family cat and dog as well as grandma and grandpa. Each page is full of actions and descriptions of the daily activities of the little exploring baby.

This is a fun read for your little one, even before she understands the words. She'll like the sounds and the pictures. I do.

I read this book to my nephew and he ate it up! He is really close to his family and wouldn't let me say Grandma, I had to change it to Mamaw. I ended up having to read it to him several times and after just a couple of times reading through, he would start clapping right before I got to that part. My favorite was all the hugs and kisses he gave. This is a really great book!

Looking for a sing-song rhyme board book that can you read bear to reread over and over? Baby Baby Baby by Marilyn Janovitz features babies' favorite things to look at: other babies. Starring a chubby baby, some family members, bouncy rhythm and alliteration, Baby Baby Baby is an adorable fun book that encourages interaction while reading.

Throughout the book, baby goes through a variety of sound-and-m0tion actions: clapping, dancing, crawling, splish and splashing, giggling, hugs, etc till baby is all worn out and down for the night. Each action is repeated so older babies can pick up the pattern and anticipate the repeating rhythm of the stanzas, act out the motions and read along. Baby has activities with mom, dad, grandma, dog, cat, and grandpa.

Baby Baby Baby will stand up to countless readings plus the typical wear a toddler can wreak on a book, thanks to its hard and durable cover. The text is in bold black letters, centered so baby can focus on it easily. The illustrations by Janovitz feature curves and soft shapes, with a rainbow of colors and patterns. Baby's jumper is thin and red white stripes, she sits in front of a green wallpaper with multiple squares. All details that will catch developing minds' eyes. Recommended for Leslie Patricelli fans.

It's true that all a board book really needs to fulfill its purpose is durability. Be the book that can stand up to the rigors of a toddler and everyone loves you. Every once in awhile, a board book will come along that catches my attention by going over and above my expectations. I particularly like this one because of the flowing rhyme. Reading this is as close to singing without actually singing. It's catchy and fun!

Like most great board books, this has a simple set up. Everyone in the family, from Mommy all the way down to the family cat, has an activity they love to do with baby. Daddy's baby likes to dance, Grandma's baby likes to splash in the bath, and Puppy's little baby likes to crawl. The book has a nice little wind down where the baby does some hugging and snuggling and settles down for sleep. The verb is printed in triplicate, like in this excerpt:

Bitsy bouncy baby
On a bumpity lap

CLAP
CLAP
CLAP!

The bright colors (mom's red hair - wow!) are stimulating and the illustrations are pleasing - we particularly liked the perfectly round heads. Clearly, this is a book for younger children, but my six year old has been reading it aloud for several days. He's hooked on the the rhymes and enjoys acting out the motions. If an older kid has taken this much of a shine to it, I imagine younger children would be bowled over. The downside to this book - it's so freaking catchy that I can't get it out of my head! Daddy's little baby likes to dance, dance, dance!
