Jazz Baby

Jazz Baby

2008 Geisel Honor Book

I have used this in story times for babies, ages 0-23 months, and we really have a good time bouncing the babies to the beat. "Mama sings high - Daddy sings low"! The text rolls you from page to page, and the pictures swing right along. It's fun - "Oh, Yeah." This is a 2008 Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor Award winner.

With a simple clap of hands, an itty-bitty beboppin' baby gets his whole family singing and dancing. Sister's hands snap. Granny sings scat. Uncle soft-shoes--and Baby keeps the groove. Things start to wind down when Mama and Daddy sing blues so sweet. Now a perfectly drowsy baby sleeps deep, deep, deep.

Lisa Wheeler and R. Gregory Christie pair up for a celebration of music, imagination, and big families--but they know that even a jazz baby needs to snooze. Oh yeah.---from the publisher
