Story Times for One and All!

A few days ago, a friend sent me a video of this adorable baby reading my book BABY SHOES. Watch her as she reads the book to herself, not quite able to say the words but repeating the sounds and intonation. The words are "Baby has some brand new shoes. White as light, stripe of blue." At the end she's "reading" the line, "loop-de-looping shoes!"



Baby Shoes was my very first children's picture book and was reissued last year in a new puffy board book edition. It's one that I still adore reading with toddlers because it's so interactive and they love joining in for the refrain.

That beautiful baby inspired me to record a video of my own, reading BABY SHOES aloud.



If you like the book, you can purchase it here -- and please send me videos of your own adorable small one reading it aloud!
