Make sure you get the book with the Doll! Jun 7, 2008
My wife and I have purchased six of these books with the bunny doll. The reason we have bought six is my little girl has literally hugged them to death. This is her favorite doll, bar none. No other one competes. She takes it to bed, to the store, to the doctor.
The most beautiful moments to have with your child May 30, 2008
This is a must give present for any baby shower. I learned of this book from a pre school teacher. The familiar tune with all the consumerism taken out. In its place instead are lessons about teaching your child about the awe in nature and quiet moments bonding with Mommy. I love this book and at 3 years old, my son still insists that I "sing me the song book" to him before he goes to bed. We sing it together before he goes to bed. What a wonderful lullaby to sing your child. Illustrations are a little too "vintage" for me but the lesson is wonderful. My son seems to love the pictures though.
THIS is the book you want to give to the new parent Mar 22, 2008
Updated words/lyrics and instead of stressing materialism--"going to buy you a..." it speaks of experiences parent will share with child. So what if it's "mama" in the story. You can (and should!) easily substitute papa. The mama rabbit wears a bathrobe throughout the whole story, so for all your not-yet-reading-baby knows, it's a daddy rabbit wearing a slightly ruffly nightshirt under his bathrobe. This is my favorite gift book to new moms and dads.
Beautiful Illustrations Jun 27, 2007
Really well drawn and written - nice updated version of the nursery rhyme. Its a wonderful story to sing and definitely a favourite bedtime book.
Good concept, but only OK... May 25, 2007
Good concept, but still very old-fashioned---I don't know anyone, let alone a mom, who plays a banjo!
"If that lighning bug won't glow, Mama's going to play on her old banjo."
I thought it was going to be more up-to-date. One the plus-side, the board book seems good and sturdy...
