Baby dance by Ann Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in Undetermined and English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For babies who are responding to music and movement, here's a playful poem that has father and child dancing lovingly across the pages. 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 vivid pastel illustrations full of the soft, gentle motion of dance

"What would you do if a load of rubbish suddenly started talking to you? Or if you realized one day that your pet mouse was smarter than the headmaster of your school? Pete Smith does not believe in magic or fairies, but you tend to re-evaluate your beliefs when someone is murdered and you suddenly have to rely on talking mice and garbage heaps that fly around in revved up dustbins to save you from hordes of boy-eating rats. A must for those who crave magic and adventure with a touch of the bizarre."--T.p. cover
