      No, that's But Not the Hippopotamus. "Then the animal pack comes scurrying back, shouting "HEY! Come join the lot of us!""

      Does anyone else have 42 board books memorized? Because I think that's the only new party trick I have this season. I am SO MUCH COOLER than I was before I had a kid. Right?

      I used to have 42 board books memorized. My son's favorite was Put Me In the Zoo. Do you know there are only two words in that book with more than 1 syllable? (violet and circus) We loved Moo Baa La La La, but we also loved Blue Hat, Green Hat (silly turkey!). Such a cutie Jacob is! We loved the video, too!

      I have Put Me in the Zoo memorized. I had to buy it for him because I remember it from when I was little. We can't get him to "Moo" but he's very into the "Baa" and "La La La"-ing. My favorite is Hippos Go Berserk. It's currently in accordion form, the packing tape I'd used to reassemble its spine didn't hold!

      And she just doesn't know, should she stay or should she go? But Yes! The Hippopotamus. Sandra Boynton's seem the easiest to memorize.

      You can't go wrong w/ Boynton!( & I LOVE it she has armadillos!) As always Jacob is a doll, thanks for sharing.

      wait until you try to skip a few words or even a page or two when he is older and he will protest ..THEY have them memorized as well!

      Then the animal pack comes scurrying back ... I love that book, and so does my son, although he doesn't make any sounds yet -- he just looks/listens intently and turns the page right on cue. The Little Blue Truck is another favorite of his, if you're looking for any wonderful new books: great rhymes, beautiful illustrations, and a really sweet story.

      As far as the coolness factor, with that cute kiddo on your arm, you will always be cool by association! But, barring that, check out this website of "cool" items created by a woman here in Louisville KY who like you, used to be cool-www.iusedtobecool.com. Hope you find something you like!

      Oh yes, this looks very familiar. Lucy loved every one of those Sandra Boynton books at Jacob's age, plus Nina Laden, Curious George, and anything with rhymes and silly sounds. I still have them all memorized. "Broccoli stew. Ewww! For the bunny, not for you."

      Watch out. Next year he'll look like this: www.flickr.com/photos/shaunaforce/5278855539/

      My 2.5 year old makes me read Hippos Go Beserk to her every night before bed. This has been going on for several months. We read another book or two, and then she insists "I want Hippos Go Berserk!" Memorized isn't the word for it at this point. Those hippos are lodged deep in my brain. I'm surprised I haven't dreamed about them yet. The Belly Button Book is pretty good too, and if Jacob is as interested in his belly button as my daughter is, he may really get into that one.

      yeah, once they get that walking thing down they're never ever ever again where you last saw them.
