A joyful story in rhyme. So fun to read again and again. Try skipping rope while reciting it!

My mother sang the song to me when I was a kid. I had completely forgotten about this song until I randomly picked this book up at the library for my kids. They loved the book and the song and it allowed me to bring back wonderful memories long forgotten. Great Book!

I love singing books!
Why does the baby eat the soap, why does he get sick, who are all these crazy people?
Children enjoy figuring out what is going on in this story that is a song.

Another book I challenge you to read without singing.
