My 8 week old loves this book! She started getting interested about 2 weeks ago. She loves to look at the faces, especially the "Kiss Kiss" face. Thanks!

I'm in the middle of getting my CDA! For homework this week I had to come up with 10 childrens books. Ba Ba Ha Ha is one of the ones I picked. I use this book with my two year old's in my classroom. This book is one of my favorites!

I have a 3 mos old son, Eli. We introduced the book to him about a month ago, and it never fails to produce smiles -- sometimes even laughter! It's magical! There is something about the sounds and the images that really speak to him, and as a therapist, I find it fascinating. Thank you!

My name is Tom Carroll we recently purchased 20 copies of BaBaHaHa for the Parenting life Skills Center(Springfield Mo).

I have been working in early childhood for 25 years and have been using your book since it came out
I have had only 2 copies, one which was read and eaten by my kids and falling apart.

I always share with the families that I have worked with that my son could read BaBaHaha with me when he was 10 months old.
Presently, I have a home visitation program for new moms and I teach (bonding/attachment) Baby and 1 year old classes with "high risk" families
I use BABAHAHA as part of my curriculum.
Getting parents to read to their infant- a book Like Hoban's Black on White doesn't give the parent anything to read Ba Ba does even low literacy parents can "read" your book.

I have been contacting other early childhood programs and promoting this book.

I've given most of mine away so I am working on some way to get more.

Thanks for what you have created.
I really believe that it is the most developmentally appropriate book there is for young children.

So glad to see Ba Ba Ha Ha is back! I bought my copy when my first was a baby (11 year-old now) and it survived two siblings a nephew and several friends--now it is in several pieces and I needed a new copy for our fourth child (a 5 month old). I also plan to purchase copies for my friend and sister-in-law. It is such a great book--hope you do more like it. Thanks for bringing it back!

Hi Mr. Zimm,
Attached are a couple of pictures of our hand-me-down (x7 cousins) books, and in behalf of the VanWagenen sisters, thank you so much for these incredible books.
