Item description for Baby Dance (Harper Growing Tree) by Ann Taylor & Marjorie Van Heerden...

A rhythmic poem by a nineteenth-century poet is teamed up with vivid pastel illustrations in a board book that celebrates a parent's loving toss and twirl of a baby.

Publishers Description

Up and down, to and fro, coo and crow baby, there you go. Up to the ceiling, down to the ground, backward and forward, round and round ... All babies love to be lifted, twirled and held in loving arms. Now a rhythmic poem by nineteenth century poet Anne Taylor makes a delightful board book perfect for baby and parent to share. Marjorie van Heerden has captured the energy and joy of this playful text in vivd pastel illustrations full of the soft, gentle motion of dance.

For babies who are responding to music and movement, here's a playful poem that has father and child dancing lovingly across the pages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Baby Dance (Harper Growing Tree)?

you'll read it again and again  Nov 15, 2007
Cute book about a father dancing with his baby girl. The text rhymes, which makes it easy to read --- almost like a song.
Lovely to sing to your baby  Nov 7, 2007
My daughter loved this book as a baby. We had it out of the library so many times, I bought it when she was 10 months old. Her 3 year old brother and I both learnt it by heart from singing it to her every night. She still really likes it at 21 months old, though now we don't read it every night. I love the illustrations that show the real movement of the baby up and down, round and round, and of course that one can sing the whole book.
Very cute book.  Apr 14, 2007
I love the artwork and I love that the dad is the main character along with his daughter. Wonderful read for your newbor and infant!
Not just for babies  Apr 9, 2006
My daughter, nearly three, picked Baby Dance out of the library on her own. She has insisted on having it sung to her every night for the past three weeks. She's at the "why" stage of life -- so rather than just enjoy the pictures, she's also questioning the plot: why is the baby sad (at the beginning)? and observing "look, the mama's awake! (at the end). The book is a really sweet take on something all too familiar -- a baby's distress that mama's not always available -- but with a lovely message that dada can make baby smile, too!
This book is just beautiful!  Oct 13, 2005
This book is so lovely and my 5 month old daughter beamed the first time she saw it. The poem is simple and the pictures are so sweet. The daddy swings the baby girl all around as her tears turn into laughter. It reminds me of how my daughter and my husband play together....maybe it reminds my daughter of her daddy too! Love it!
