The research confirms: the best kind of story to read to your baby in utero is . . .
In other words, Rollicking! And Recognizable even from within the muffled environment of the womb.

But we can do even better than Mr. Lear when it comes to a perfectly rollicking limerick that expresses your joyful anticipation of the birth of your baby! Just for a sample:

But someday you’ll crawl, walk and run
I will cry “Peek-a-boo!”
For a giggle from you
Oh, I can’t wait to show you the fun!
