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 Boynton's 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!! This book is great!! My little guy is only 7 months old and I have just started reading to him, and this is my absolute favourite book. The different fonts make it easy for anyone to make this story sound interesting - and it IS interesting! Every time I read it I smile and laugh. I just can't wait for my son to be old enough to be reading along with me. Now I'm on the hunt for other Sandra Boynton books as well....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superbly Silly! One of my best friends highly recommended Sandra Boynton books, so I decided to buy one for my son. The Belly Button Book just happened to be the choice. I took it home & read it as our bedtime story that night. My son, Zach, 18 months, was enthralled. After 2 more nights of reading it, he pointed to it and said "bee-bo". I almost cried! Today I went out & bought the Big Box of Boynton set and can't wait to add Greatest Hits 1 and II to our collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Belly Button Book is Boynton's Best! Okay, so who doesn't love Boyton's books?! She is always seriously silly and this book is no exception. I first stumbled across it at a friend's house and read it to her 2 and 4-year-olds and my 3-year-old. I laughed so hard I was crying and could hardly get through the book. And the kids went crazy! They laughed and laughed and when I read it to them again they anticipated every funny part and would even yell out Belly Button (apparently the best part) with me at the top of their voices! I had not previously encountered the Belly Button song from Boyton's album 'Philadelphia Chickens', so after reading the book I ran out and bought the album as well, so we can sing the Belly Button song the way it ought to be sung! :o) You will not regret the purchase of this Boyton book - the best yet, in my opintion...but there are so many favourites...
