Bitsy bouncy baby on a bumpity lap Mommy’s little baby likes to Clap Clap Clap!

This giggly, bouncy story perfect for babies and their families!

In this adorable story, little baby does various activities with each member of the family (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Kitty, and Puppy). Then it’s time for bedtime hugs and kisses!

Snuggle up close,
Cuddle your cheek
Whose little baby likes to,
Sleep Sleep Sleep?

Entertaining and lively text coupled with adorable and engaging art by author/illustrator Marilyn Janovitz makes this the perfect book for babies and the people who read to them!

My Thoughts:

This is another instant favorite board book that we have read recently.  I initially got this book to read to Arabella, but have found that Savannah likes it just as much.  We have been reading this before nap time, and end off each reading with a big hug and kiss.  The best part of this book is the cute illustrations of the baby, who is loved by every member of the family, including the family pet.  I love reading this short story to the girls, so that they can see the interaction a child has between parents, grandparents and more.  Savannah loves the interaction this book offers, as I act out each page with her when we read it -- like clapping, giggling, playing peek-a-boo.  This book is definitely a fun book to read to little ones, and being a board book, it will withstand daily wear and tear --and, the occasional gnawing, caused by teething. :-)
