Wee Rhymes: Baby's First Poetry Book
by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Jane Dyer
Ages 4-8 112 pages Simon and Schuster March 2013 Hardcover    

Hereís a special collection of poems to celebrate babyís first days and to share together at read aloud time. These poems address everything from meals and bedtime to riding in a supermarket basket as mom shops:
Letís go to the supermarket.
Ride down every aisle,
wave at all the shoppers,
make everybody smile.
The seventy-five short verses are a combination of new material and classic rhymes.

Jane Dyerís wonderful illustrations depict children at various ages engaging in the activities alluded to in each poem. They capture babyís first steps, children playing with favorite toys, activities with mom and dad, and even enjoying some milk out of a non-spill, sippity sup cup. Remember those plastic cups that enabled your child to drink by himself without spilling?

This is not only an excellent way to enjoy some simple poetry about everyday events but also to introduce your child or grandchild to the wonder of words. Wee Rhymes: Baby's First Poetry Book is one you and your child will treasure for years to come.
