flip-flapA succession of baby animals and their mamas cavort to a lively rhyming text that also works as a guessing game. First the mama bird helps the baby bird “flip flap fly”, the mama fish helps the baby fish “splish splash swim”, etc. One animal leads to the next as the baby cries “Look I see…” A turn of the page reveals the next rhyming animal allowing children to guess the answer. The final pair is a mama and child who is lovingly and joyfully lifted in the air, exclaiming: “Look, babies everywhere!”

Although the book is a little small (8×9 inches), the lovely rhymes and sounds make this perfect for reading aloud. Babies will respond to the sounds and rhythms while toddlers can guess the next animal.
