Publishers Description
Set your inhibitions aside. Completely nutty yet effective, 97 WAYS TO MAKE A BABY LAUGH, now with over 702,000 copies in print, is the perfect, charming gift book for parents who want to tickle their baby's funnybone, and their own. It's like a book of parlor tricks, except that the person who's being entertained is six months old and often as impassive as stone. Adult readers, especially those harried by the day-to-day details of caring for an infant, will rediscover their own sense of the absurd and delight in the suggestions and illustrations.

Like countless parents before him, Jack Moore was frustrated trying to amuse his baby son, Brick. Then he set aside his inhibitions and discovered the sheer family pleasure of playing "Live Jack-in-the-Box" (put Dad in a large cardboard box, then have the family sing the familiar tune-at "pop," Dad jumps out). "Three Card Monte for Babies" (using plastic cups and a lemon). The "One Torso, Two Heads" trick (Mom and Dad stand back to back and drape a sheet over their shoulders). "Mr. Ed Impression Contest." "The Human Carousel." "Who's Behind the Door?" And an updated "Stinky Feet Act."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cute with good ideas  Feb 8, 2008
I checked this book out of the library while looking for ideas to entertain and stimulate my 9 month old. It is a cute little book with lots of simple ideas that are easy to do. So far, all of the ones we have tried have gotten anywhere from a giggle to a belly laugh. Very cute.
So obvious  Oct 17, 2007
I was looking for some unique and fun ideas, but most of them are overly obvious, and some are just out right ridiculous (and I'm not one who is afraid to 'get silly'!) Good thing I only paid about $1!
A great baby shower gift!  Jan 21, 2004
Clever and funny, this tongue-in-cheek book is for "grown-ups" who love babies and aren't afraid to act like one. A perfect gift for new parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings of babies. And did I mention "witty"? My favorite is #66, which I would have named "The Sisyphus." These "97 ways" actually work--or I know alot of silly babies. Don't forget to leave a copy around for the babysitter.
Great Daddy Shower Gift  Nov 27, 2001
I think this is a cute little book. Only fault is it lacks alot of substance, but its silly with great little photos. My husband and I are having our first baby Spring 2002. Some friends of mine are throwing a Daddy Shower for my husband as a gag party, and to make him feel like he is part of it all. I think for $7~or less it's a great little gift idea.
Funny reading - lousy ideas  Sep 26, 2001
This book is a great read if you are just looking for a laugh (for yourself, not your baby.)

Only a handful of the ideas are feasible. Unless your husband really wants to wear a giant diaper, or you want grandma to go in a huge box and be a giant jack-in-the box. The ideas are cute and funny, but few are practical. Laughing with your child is a wonderful thing, and enjoying your baby is important, but these ideas are not well-thought out and a waste of your time. Finger plays and tickling sessions will elicit more genuine laugther than throwing random objects out of your window from the 2nd floor, while baby looks out the 1st floor window!

A poor choice at any price!
