    1. Probably the best Baby Storytime resource I've read so far.Great ideas for what to do for storytime, along with easy-to-understand literacy tips and explanations.

    2. I have been presenting a baby story time for over a year now. While I have no problem adapting songs and rhymes to fit this particular situation, this is a marvelous resource that focuses on early literacy.

    6. One of my favorite professional collection books! Tons of great lap rhymes and other ideas for baby storytime.

    7. Meh. I like the list of books to use, but the songs and rhymes were very blah. I don't think I'd use any of them.
