Dance Baby Dance is an enchanting first book for babies. The rolling, rollicking poetry, paired with colorful and diverse photographic images of babies with their friends and families, is the perfect companion to Welcome Song for Baby: A lullaby for newborns (Orca 2007).

CM Magazine
"An excellent lap book to be shared...A most worthy public library addition and an excellent gift book purchase for parents. Highly recommended."
Quill & Quire
“Show[s] a charming variety of babies and toddlers learning to explore and enjoy their surroundings...The book offers reassurance - perhaps to the adult reading it aloud as much as to Baby - that the world is a pleasant and loving place in which Baby is free to explore, play, and develop.”

"Perfect for one-on-one sharing, this is a great addition to public library board book collections."
