Product Description

The dynamic, best-selling team of Lin Oliver and Tomie dePaola have created a charming collection of baby poems that makes the perfect gift for baby showers and first birthdays.

For babies and toddlers, each moment is full of wonder and discovery. This delightful collection of original poems celebrates the everyday things that enthrall little ones, such as playing peekaboo, banging pots and pans, splashing at bath time, and cuddling at bedtime. Full of contagious rhythm and rhyme, this inviting picture book introduces young children to the sound of poetry, and beloved illustrator Tomie dePaola’s engaging children are the perfect match for Lin Oliver’s lighthearted poems. Together they’ve created a book to be treasured that captures the magic and fun of being new in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for every new parent! 19 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book of poems to read to babies and toddlers. All the poems are pertinent to a small child---they're about things they do or see, etc all day long. The poems are fun for adults to read, too. This book would make a great gift for new parents and because they are poems, it might take the pressure off an adult who may be intimidated with reading a whole book to a baby. But with a poetry book, you can just read one or two and call it good!
5.0 out of 5 stars LITTLE POEMS FOR TINY EARS is a Gift of a Book! 11 Jun 2014
By Imogene - Published on
What a gift LITTLE POEMS FOR TINY EARS is! One is never too young to be introduced to poetry and the enrichment it brings to our lives. This charming book for babies and toddlers (and their parents, grandparents, and others) with its clever, endearing poems paired with colorful, captivating illustrations is—as Goldilocks says—“Just Right!” It's uplifting to read poems that relate so touchingly to a baby’s unique experience. Lin Oliver’s witty, empathic writing beautifully expresses a child’s sense of wonder and discovery. Tomie dePaola’s art aptly enriches the book, and perfectly matches Oliver’s odes. That Oliver articulates the newness of the world from a tiny child’s vantage point is especially appealing. How gratifying it must be for parents reading these verses aloud to their precious young, to communicate the sentiments they themselves must be feeling!

I also love how thoughtful and multicultural LITTLE POEMS FOR TINY EARS is, in details small and large. The alluring illustrations and heartfelt words are pure pleasure for the eye and ear. The end page of fun stickers and delightful wrapping paper jacket complete this special gift of a book!

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing poetry collection for babies and toddlers 15 Feb 2014
By J. Prather - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a truly fine collection of poetry that is tailor made for the youngest readers. These short bits of verse are whimsical, well written, and address all the issues that toddlers will find interesting, mysterious or funny. From The Bath, to My Daddy's Beard, Hush, and Blankie, Oliver hits on everything. None of them are very long, so you won't have any trouble remembering them to recite over and over again. I was particularly excited to find more than a few that are well suited to baby and toddler story times. I loved the poem entitled My Tongue, which states in part: "...It's in my mouth A little south Of where you'll find my nose." Lots of important information there!

I will admit that I have never been a big fan of Tomie dePaola. His illustrations have never appealed to me with their soft fuzzy acrylics and rounded edges. He provides the illustrations for this collection, and I sincerely believe that you couldn't have found a better accompaniment for these little gems. They perfectly accent each poem, and turn this book into a true gift-quality collection that I think should be a must have for any new parent. There are 23 poems included in this collection.

Finally, a short note to story time leaders. If you are looking for a few new little rhymes to pump up your infant and toddler story programs, give this book a try. The ones on body parts offer a nice alternative to the usual ones we do every week, and the subject matter is varied enough to fill out a number of themes. Little Poems for Tiny Ears is a great collection and an enthusiastic recommend.
