The words in this book are so very addictive. Our wee Bloom requests it by patting a rhythm on his round little tummy,  reciting, "DA-da-da..." and I hate to tell you how many times I read it to him every day. I'm not tired of it (yet),  but it does stick in my head and won't go away.  How about you?

  1. My kids weren't so crazy about this one. They, do, however *love* the Green Sheep book you suggested. Love, love, love it. I'm going to have to acquire a copy once this one is due back to the library. (:

  3. My crew have all LOVED this when they were "little". Sadly, the book was loved to bits. Literally.
