Rock-a-bye baby,
on the tree top,
you know the rest--
that baby goes plop.
Did people really
stick babies in trees?
This song is a nightmare!
Next lullaby, please.

I had a book of funny poems similar to those in Maybe I'll Sleep in the Bathtub Tonight, as a child, and I absolutely loved them. I nearly read that book to death and it's easy to visualize this book being read to tattered shreds, although it has a beautiful hard cover and should last a good long time. Great for reading at bedtime or for older children to read on their own, the rhymes are cute and silly, the illustrations bright and cheerful.

Poems: 5/5 - Cute, humorous rhymes that children and adults will love to giggle over together and older children will enjoy reading on their own.

Illustrations: 5/5 - Gorgeous, slightly retro-looking illustrations, bright and colorful and just a little bit silly.

This is book #4 for Children's Day. Believe it or not, there is still more to come!


  1. Another one that would be great for the grandkids (and me)!

  2. Jenclair,

    I like the fact that you're thinking of children's books as something fun for you, too, and not just for the grandkids. I'm that way. I don't have any qualms about sitting down to read a children's book for the joy of it, by myself. I do often end up reading to cats, though. :)
