Format: Paperback
Catch Me Kiss Me is a book I would choose to give as a baby gift time and again. The poetry really gets a baby's attention, and makes the child interested in talking. The interaction between the brother and sister is sweet and a good example of sibling love. I think toddlers will model this behavior, especially after hearing it so much. There is a lot of fun family interaction and the watercolor drawings are soft and delightful.

I was given a copy of this book when my first daughter was born in 1984, and my wife and I read it to her and her little sister so many times that all 4 of us still recall the verses - with enormous fondness! The charming watercolor illustrations are as timeless as the poems - the first time you read it, you'll have a nostalgic feeling that you've seen the pictures and heard the poems when you were a child. Spoken aloud, the sing-song rhythm and alliterations captivate adults and children. Even now, when I have not seen the book in months, I can feel my baby clapping in my lap as I recall "clapcake clapcake, butter and milk, honey and ginger, whipped to silk. cornmeal, oatmeal, a penny pinch of flour, Clap me out a clapcake, and bake it for an hour."

When our youngest daughter moved away from home, this was one of only 3 baby books we kept. I just came to amazon hoping to buy a new copy for a friend and her new baby (I won't give my copy away!), and I'm astounded that it is out of print. This is a timeless gem. It needs to be published again.

Format: Paperback
Catch Me and Kiss Me was the first book my wife and I read to our three children (now 22, 19 and 17). There are other fine children's books but this is certainly in the top ten. The children developed an appreciation of poetry and the poems remain favorites of all. I bought 8 copies the last time it was in print and gave them as gifts whenever a friend had their first child. I'd buy another 10 today. Please ask the publisher to print more. Alex Poliakoff alex_poliakoff@ed.gov

"Catch Me & Kiss Me & Say It Again" is such a wonderful book to read aloud. I first found a copy in our public library, and after that I had to have a copy of my own. I still read it aloud sometimes, even though my youngest "baby" is now 9 1/2. I would like to buy one as a gift. I hope the publisher continues to make it available.

My adult daughters are all clamoring for copies of Catch Me for their children because they loved it so much. Our whole family knows most of the rhymes by heart, even almost thirty years later, simply because we have continued to recite the rhymes in various apposite moments throughout our everyday lives. Now a nephew and his wife have just named their daughter Phoebe Rose, so of course I cannot help myself and simply must recite or sing "Phoebe in a Rose Bush" to this sweet baby girl.

I read this book endlessly to my daughter when she was 3 or 4, She's now 25 and I've gone after a copy for a new niece.
I still remember "one for me and one for you, there's one leftover so what do we do?, take up our knife and cut it into, so there's one for me and one for you." Also hear comes the mouse. I'm getting a copy to keep it around for the grand kids.
