Wee Rhymes provides new parents with a source of bedtime stories for their new addition to the family. The poems on each page are geared towards young minds. The illustrations are geared towards mature appreciation. The combination of the two make for a poetry book to be enjoyed by everyone in the family.
Not only will parents enjoy reading to their babies, but they will also enjoy reading to their toddlers. Older siblings can handle the simple and large text and would feel accomplished and nurturing as they share their reading skills with their younger brothers and sisters.
