"eight dancing on Daddy's feet cha-cha hugs"
Bookworm's interest at 15 months: Wasn't interested upon first read, but we waited a few days, and then he loved it. As soon as I pointed out that there was a "Daddy" in it, he was a fan. Bonus: he snuggled into my lap and "hugged" after every page.
"With Daddy's help, I do great things / I climb, I slide, I fly on swings!"
Bookworm's interest at 16 months: He enjoys this one very much.
"HOP POP We like to hop. We like to hop on top of Pop. / STOP You must not hop on Pop."
Bookworm's interest at 17 months: Our little guy loves to hop on me (as I say "oof!"), so that is what made me think we had to read this book. Now when he hops on me, he whines until I recite the hop line. He understood it was about hopping on a Dad, but since Dada was sick at the time we read it, he wasn't allowed to try it out on him. And now I'm the well established hop-ee. (Or however you might spell that made up word).
Parent's Peeve: I don't really care for pages 14-16 ("DAY PLAY We play all day. / NIGHT FIGHT We fight all night. / HE ME He is after me. / HIM JIM Jim is after him.") Besides the idea of fighting all night not really being a good lesson for kids, the "HIM JIM" page shows a boy biting a creature's tail. It's just a little creepy.
