Baby Shark by John John BajetI received a free copy of this book at the Scholadtic booth at the National Book Festival today and read it while at the event.
Perhaps if I were familiar with the song or if I had a small child around with whom I could sing the song and act out the dances, I would more appreciate this book.
But I dont.
I suppose I should be thankful that this song had not insinuated itself into my brain like an earworm.
Unfortunately, I went against my best judgment and searched for the vital video online.
If I had young children, I am sure we would have listened to it many times by now, and I understand how it can be both annoying and memorable.
Maybe contagious is a better term. In fact, one of the first items that came up in my search for the song is this article from CNN that shows how one community is blaring songs like this one around facilities to deter homeless people from camping out in those locations.
I will admit that I appreciate the instructions on how to act out the various parts, but overall I did not feel like the book had any real substance.
Cute illustrations, though.
