"The lap is a kind of a schoolroom," writes Yolen. This wonderful collection of lap songs, finger plays, clapping games and pantomime rhymes provides fun and will help make baby's first "school" a success. Each page of this oversized treasury features a classic rhyme, suggested actions, and footnotes about the rhyme's history and origins; the accompanying CD has the melodies for the songs. The rhymes help babies and toddlers to hear and play with the smaller sounds in words, which will help them in sounding out words when they begin to read. If you're looking for a great gift for a new parent, look no further than This Little Piggy.
