Sounds, combined with physical contact, have long been used to lull babies to sleep, soothe them in times of stress, and engage them in active play. Today we understand that using rhythmic sounds and sensations is not only fun-it actually strengthens the bonds between parents and babies and is integral to a baby's development and wellbeing. THE LAUGHING BABY is an inspirational collection of children's songs and rhymes gathered from around the world. Rooted in ancient oral traditions and handed down through the generations, the songs and rhymes are as fresh today as they were a century or more ago. From the lesser known "Samoan Rock-a-Bye" and "Hindi Peek-a-Boo" to the popular "Frère Jacques," THE LAUGHING BABY is a delightful way for parents and children to spend their special time together.
