Synopses & Reviews
Emboldened by the enthusiastic response to Belly Button (Round)
— a song from her Grammy-nominated book/CD, Philadelphia Chickens
— Sandra Boynton further contemplates this mesmerizing subject.
Featuring a beachful of bare-bellied hippos — including one tiny baby who can only say "Bee Bo" — the Belly Button Book is the latest quirky addition to the phenomenally successful Boynton on Board series. Every page captivates with Sandra Boyntons inimitable illustrations and joyful rhyming text:
Soon after dark, upon the beach, we sing a hippo song, and if you're feeling in the mood, we hope you'll sing along: "Belly Belly Button, you're oh so fine. Ooo, Belly Button, I'm so happy you're mine."
Shiny and sturdy, and featuring a great (navel-shaped, naturally) die-cut cover that offers a provocative glimpse of the merriment inside, the Belly Button Book provides enduring, giggly, read-aloud fun.
Hoping for hippos?
Take a look!
They're in this
BELLY BUTTON BOOK!
