Review of Play Baby Play

Play Baby Play by Marilyn Janovitz grabs your attention right from the start with its adorable cover of a bent over baby looking at your between its legs. This familiar playful stance is absolutely endearing. Through the book, we follow the young boy as he frolics at his playgroup. Rhythmic rhyming text details favorite baby activities, such as riding a rocking horse, reading books and kicking a ball.

The characters in this book were very carefully chosen to represent both boys and girls, as well as the basic different ethnic groups. The pictures are absolutely adorable, which will make it an appealing read for parents as well as for young children. Text is also easy to read. It reminds me a lot of the Toddler Time series by Elizabeth Verdick. Those books have always been popular with the young children with whom I work. I can see snuggling with a young baby or toddler while reading this book over and over again.

I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
