When I was expecting my first child, I would daydream about sitting on my glider and lulling my lil one to sleep with the classic nursery rhymes my mother sang to me. In the days after my son arrived, he was serenaded with Rock-a-Bye Baby and Twinkle Twinkle until my mama went home and then I drew a blank. I only wish Humpty Who? ($9) had been around back then – it would have cut my long distance bill in half. The collection of 80 songs, rhymes and finger games is a virtual crash course in the tunes that have soothed generations of babies before us. Complete with explanations about the songs and an accompanying CD, the book is a must have for any new parent who is making their way through the bleary-eyed days of a new addition to their family.
