Synopsis

Hippety-Hop, Hippety-Hay Growing with Rhymes from Birth to Age 3 by Opal Dunn

An enjoyable selection of interactive rhymes, graded for use according to age, from young babies to three year-olds. Opal Dunn's wide experience as a language consultant has enabled her to make this a very practical anthology, including suggestions for play activities to accompany the rhymes. Here is a book full of laughter and fun that will help children who are learning to speak, and will also lay the foundations for future reading skills.
